Hi Charlie,
Many thanks for this excellent updates. Thanks to everyone in the LOC, AT members who worked for this.
Your efforts to create this paper review management and publishing system for future FOSS4G Academic proceedings is greatly appreciated and will benefit the whole OSGeo community for the future years. Thank you for making this possible.  I request future FOSS4G  Academic Committees to make use of this and build upon this for the future.
Best wishes,

Dear FOSS4G 2017 Boston Academic Proceedings authors, Academic Committee [1], and OSGeo and GeoForAll community,
The final peer-reviewed, published academic proceedings for FOSS4G 2017 Boston is now available at: 
You can download either the full proceedings pdf (including posters), or individual papers. Each has a listed recommended citation. Relevant library search databases are getting fed the metadata through BePress' [3] Scholarworks publishing platform.  Following past practices, we also intend to make the proceedings available on the OSGeo journal website and we are working on getting the new OSGeo logo on the banner.
I want to thank everyone who contributed to these proceedings: the authors, the terrific academic review committee [1], UMass Amherst librarian Erin Jerome, Aurora Alder at BEPress [3], and especially to my co-editors Andy Anderson and Mohammed Zia. Zia deserves special thanks for his efforts. He's an exceptionally talented and capable individual. 

Finally, we'd like to emphasize that this Scholarworks paper review management and publishing system, supported by BEPress [3] is now available for future FOSS4G conference academic proceedings, at no cost to OSGeo\GeoForAll. We implemented this system with the hope that it will be used for future FOSS4G conferences (such as FOSS4G NA 2018 or other upcoming FOSS4G conferences). We stand ready to teach this system works to future academic committee chair(s). Just contact me (cschweik at pubpol.umass.edu).  
Charlie Schweik (on behalf of our team: Mohammed Zia, Andy Anderson and Erin Jerome)
