Hi Massimiliano,

I will be very interested to see how this initiative develops. It overlaps with a couple of the areas that I'm working in.

One of the hats that I wear is as Co-chair of the Expert Team - Climate Data Management Systems (ET-CDMS).  ET-CDMS is sponsored by the World Meteorological Organisation's Commission for Climatology.

Within ET-CDMS, we are aiming to provide guidance on the functionality that is expected within modern Climate Data Management Systems.

We have released WMO #1131, Climate Data Management System Specifications [1]. This is the initial version of this document aimed at providing climate data managers, and IT Architects with an overview of where we need to head in order to get consistent climate data (and federated climate data services) to support future climate data analysis.  More work on WMO #1131 is planned and also underway, with an initial focus on software developers.

You may find WMO #1131 of use to support your Hackathon.

On another note, there is some preliminary planning work underway aimed at establishing an open source CDMS called Open-CDMS that is intended to provide the functionality described by WMO #1131. We're not ready to publicise this, at this stage. What I can say is that we're aiming to re-use quality open source projects where possible. If anyone is interested in helping us with the preliminary planning, please contact me off-line.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] Hackathon: building fully open climatic monitoring system

Dear All,
I would like to announce that on the 6th and 7th December 2016 in Italy, in San Michele all'Adige at Fondazione Edmund Mach (Trento) [1] there will be the 1st hackathon of the OSGeo's Open Monitoring System WG [2].

The hackathon named " building fully open climatic monitoring system" [3] will bring together developers to work on Open Hardware and Open Software so that we could promote and advance in the topic of Open Monitoring Systems.
Interested people may sign up on the wiki page [3] where a draft of the program which includes presentations and practical experiments is presented.

For more information on the topic please take a look at [4]

The participation is free, while materials should be purchased by participants in advance (approx 150 USD).

The organisers [4] will try to collect sponsors and OSGeo support to reduce the cost of participants.

, seats are limited !

Best Regards from the organisers :-)
