Thanks for the heads-up!
NASA WorldWind plans to be there with a session.
Prof Maria Brovelli and I have proposed,
“CitySmart, Open Source Apps for Urban Management.”

We look forward to seeing you all in ^bellissimo^ Perugia this coming October
We hope this might also be the climax for the Europa Challenge this year.

The weather is already telling us we need to get our cities ready for more!
OpenCitySmart, one app for one world working together in each other’s interest.
Let’s finally rock this joint from the bottom up with the ‘killer app’ for cities.
Open source, open innovation, open solutions, open for business!

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] OGRS'16 -> 2nd Call for Sessions & Workshops (new deadline < February 10th, 2016)

About Open Source Geospatial Research & Education Symposium, Perugia, Italy, 12/14 October 2016, also known as OGRS'16.

Please notice the new deadline date that has been extended to February 10th, 2016. So you have still time to submit a proposal for a workshop. The same goes for a proposal of session dedicated to a subject that is important for you.

See below the text of first call.


The OGRS Community steering committee is pleased to announce the next edition of OGRS, in Perugia, Italy, 12/14 October 2016. The main scope of the 2016 symposium is within the general scope of OGRS events (see founding articles on the [ogrs-community.org<http://ogrs-community.org>] website). In summary, the 2016 symposium aims at bringing together students, technicians, researchers, developers and teachers working in different disciplines but with the common interest of using and developing Open Source Geospatial software and Open Data.

OGRS2016 [2016.ogrs-community.org<http://2016.ogrs-community.org>] is an exchange platform that will offer two days of presentations and one day of workshops. Grouped by thematic sessions, presentations (including posters as well) are about original and recent research results, educational practices and innovation experiences. Workshops are hands-on sessions on a specific theme and software with an educational component, reinforcing the education side of the symposium.

All OGRS publications will be released in collaboration with PeerJ Open Access publisher. On one hand, the short papers (1000-1500 words) submitted to OGRS2016 will be published in the proceedings of the Symposium in the frame of PeerJ Preprint. Moreover, the best contributions selected by the OGRS Scientific Committee will be invited to submit an article to the PeerJ Computer Science journal, Spatial and Geographic Information Systems subject.
