June 29 is the close of the Call for Presentations for FOSS4G (Free
and Open Source Software for Geospatial). If you plan on giving a 25
minute presentation at FOSS4G, make sure you get your abstract in
before the deadline!
FOSS4G 2007 presentations are 25 minute talks, with 5 minute question
and answer sessions at the end. Presentations cover the use or
development of open source geospatial software. Anyone can can submit
a presentation proposal and take part in the conference as a presenter.
Some topics of interest for this year are:
* Case Studies: Relate the experiences of you and your organization
using open source geospatial. Where do things work well? Poorly? What
problems did you solve, and at what cost? What do you recommend for
* Benchmarks: Comparisons between pieces of geospatial software. How
do features compare? Speed? Ease of use? What do you recommend for
* Visualization: Tell about your tips and tricks for effective
visualization. How do you present information in a compelling way?
3D? Cartographic tricks? Labelling and naming ideas? Graphs and
hybrid map/data combinations?
* Development: What are the new developments in your open source
geospatial software product? How does it work, how do people use it,
what are the technical issues you are running into?
* Hacks and Mashing: Have you put together something novel or cool
this year? What did you stick together, how did it work, show us your
* Collaboration: What techniques are you using to improve
collaboration between organizations and between individuals. Public
geodata, collaborative data collection, data sharing, open standards,
de facto standards, and more!
If you have an open source geospatial story to tell, we want to hear it!
Looking to show off your project in a short format venue? Check out
the demo theater! Note that space is limited, and sponsors get first
priority for slots.
