Hi GRASS GIS community,

please consider to showcase your work at EGU 2016 in April in Vienna!
The submission deadline is upcoming..

Subject: EGU Deadline / GRASS-Python submissions ?

Hi all,

the deadline for EGU 2016 is approaching. Is anyone of you already planning
to come to Vienna ?

Here are two sessions which are potentially of interest for our group:

EGU General Assembly 2016, Vienna Austria, 17-22 April

*ESSI2.8** : Quality-checked Software as a safe investment in Science:
Lessons from Open Source communities*
Conveners: Peter Löwe (TIB Hannover), Massimiliano Cannata (SUPSI),
 Margherita Di Leo (JRC), Raffaele Albano  (UNIBAS)

Software development in community-driven global communities such as OSGeo,
R and others has evolved in a symbiotic relationship with Science.
Scientists benefit from software functionality developed by their
community-peers and can publish their code-contributions likewise. This
based on trust in mutual standards including software quality, licensing
and documentation within each global community. The paradigm shift towards
Open Science is a driver to adopt or extend such best practices for the use
within the Earth Sciences.
Further, while well established best practices exist within each software
community, there is a lack of inter-comparability on a higher level which
poses a challenge towards Science and the software communities.
This session allows scientists to communicate their current experiences and
roads to the future for the interface between scientific research and
community-based software development.

*ESSI3.5/GI1.5 - Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Geoinformatics
and Geosciences*
Conveners: Jens Klump (CSIRO), Dominik Reusser (PIK), Peter Löwe (TIB
Hannover), Markus Neteler (Fondazione Edmund Mach), Edzer Pebesma (IFGI)

Software is critical to the success of science. Creating and using Free and
Open Source Software (FOSS) fosters contributions from the scientific
community, creates a peer-reviewed and consensus oriented environment, and
promotes sustainability of science infrastructures.
Providing open access to source code also permits reuse of data,
reproducibility of science, and creates scientific transparency. Open
science is only possible when access to data is open, and data is analysed
using open source software. This requires taking responsibility for
software development, and adopting stewardship practices for managing,
processing and disseminating scientific data products and related services.

This session will look at the growing role of Free and Open Source Software
(FOSS) in the geosciences with a special emphasis on the interoperability
among established and developing FOSS-tools within geoinformatics. The
session will be a forum for the latest advances in FOSS-empowered research,
for successful applications of existing FOSS tools for geoscientific tasks,
as for new developments in geoscience related FOSS. This session will also
discuss the publication and citation of scientific free and open source


Any suggestions for submissions from the OSGeo/GRASS/Python community ?

Happy holidays,
