Dear Serena, Maria,

This is an excellent idea. I will do my best to support this remotely. I am still waiting for some important meetings dates confirmation in June 2020 before I can confirm my participation for the ISPRS Congress.

May I also suggest that we have the GeoForAll meeting also at this BOF , so everyone involved in OSGeo education get opportunity to meet and discuss ideas. I am cc in Andreea so she can inform this. I request all colleagues attending the meeting to share their ideas/inputs on how we can accelerate efforts for helping bridge the geospatial digital divide.

Best wishes,

Dear All
time ago I wrote about the possibility of organizing a one-day Forum at ISPRS 2020 about "Open Science and New Technologies". I highlighted the importance of this event, given that ISPRS Congress (http://www.isprs2020-nice.com/) gather generally more than 3000 people and therefore it could be a good window for open data/software/education/science and so on. The Forum will be on Thursday 18 June and we need now to decide the contents and the format of the Forum.

I put in gdrive a document where interested people can add ideas (first sheet) and their name (second sheet) if they want to be involved in the Forum and attend the Congress and Forum


Thank you very much if you want to contribute.
Best regards
Maria & Serena
