GRASS GIS contributions would be very welcome.

I don't know, yet, if I will be in Brussels at the time. If yes, I can 
try to propose something.

Dear list,

FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event bringing together about 8000 
developers in Brussels, Belgium. The next edition will take place on 1 & 
2 February 2020 and provide open source software developers, endusers 
and communities a place to share minds, tech and beer. Participation is 
free of charge, although donations are welcome.

Sunday 2 Feb 2019 from 9.00-17.00, the Geospatial Devroom offers – for 
the 6th consecutive time - a podium for everything open geospatial 
technology and information related.

Geospatial technologies and mapping used to be specialists work, but 
nowadays location intelligence is becoming part of many 
industries/products/projects/applications, which often use only a small 
subset of the possibilities the data and software have to offer.

The Geospatial Devroom is the right place to talk about open geospatial 
topics related to data, software and community. This includes standards, 
usage and tools, e.g. for (temporal-)spatial databases, and online 
mapping, temporal-spatial analysis, geospatial services, used for 
collection, storage, processing, delivery, analysis, and visualizing 

We welcome submissions (projects, demo's, use cases, code wizardry, etc) :

  1. Web and desktop GIS applications;
  2. Interoperable geospatial web services and specifications;
  3. Collection of data using sensors / UAVs / satellites;
  4. Geo-analytic algorithms & libraries;
  5. Spatial extensions for classical databases (indexes, operations) and
     dedicated databases;
  6. Big Geospatial Data processing, distributed and scalable in the Cloud;
  7. Geospatial intelligence for Smart Cities, IoT and Automotive;
  8. Volunteered & Crowdsourced data examples with e.g. OpenStreetMap
  9. .... or something geospatial we did not think of !


Are you thrilled to present your work to other open source developers? 
Would you like to run a discussion? Any other ideas? Please submit your 
proposal at: https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20 

Make sure to select the 'Geospatial devroom' as 'Track'. If you have an 
account from previous years, you should be using the same. Please 
specify in the notes if you prefer for your presentation either a short 
timeslot (lightning talks ~10 minutes) or a long timeslot (20 minutes 
presentation + discussion). However, note that time slots are indicative 
and will be assigned according to the timing of the session.

The DEADLINE for submissions is Sunday, 1st December 2019, 23.59 PM. 
Notification of acceptance will be sent to the Authors by 8/12/2017 at 
the latest.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch 
with the organisers of the devroom via marcvloemans1 <at> gmail <dot> com.
