Dear all,

Survey of India will be celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2017, so it is good timing to have both Geospatial World Forum 2017 and FOSS4G-ASIA 2017  in India. It is also good to see both events taking place at Hyderabad, India in Jan 2017, so international speakers can aim to plan to attend both events.

This year, Geospatial World Forum will be organised in Hyderabad International Convention Centre on 23-25 January 2017 with the theme "Geospatial + Deep Learning: Shaping Smarter World". Started in 2007 in India, the conference has travelled to Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Geneva and Lisbon in the past years. The forum shall take a glimpse into the future of geospatial industry, where artificial intelligence and deep learning will be driving geospatial data exploration, analytics and visualisation helping us derive meaningful insights for a smarter world. The conference targets 3000 high profile delegates from global geospatial community, policy makers, academia, researchers, technology providers, solution providers, and end-user segments across industries, regions and communities. The forum is co-hosted by Survey of India and Indian Space Research Organisation, giving it great governmental leverage and support.

OSGeo-India are glad to announce the second edition of FOSS4G-Asia organized on 26th-29th January, 2017 at IIIT-Hyderabad, India. The FOSS4G conference series are designed to foster the development and promote the widespread use of open source geospatial technologies. Thanks to our GeoForAll colleagues at IIIT-Hyderabad  for hosting the event.

FOSS4G-Asia extends this movement in Asia and welcomes all GIS communities . The FOSS4G-ASIA 2017 conference aims to provide a forum during three days for wide-ranging discussions on open source geospatial themes and topics.  Details at  http://www.foss4g-asia.org/2017/

There is GeoAgri  planned at Geospatial World Forum 2017 might be of interest to those doing AgriGIS research. I will be delivering a keynote for this. The agenda and speakers are at http://geospatialworldforum.org/geoagri.asp

For those of you planning to be at the Geospatial World Forum 2017 in Hyderabad, India, i am looking forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes,


Dr. Suchith Anand
