*FOSDEM 2019: Geospatial Devroom - Call for Participation*

Please forward!

FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event bringing together about 8000
developers in Brussels, Belgium.

The goal is to provide open source software developers and communities a
place to meet and share thoughts. The participation is free of charge,
although donations are welcome.

The next edition will take place on 2 - 3 February 2019. For the fifth time
there will be a Geospatial devroom and it will be happening on Sunday
*3/2/2019* from 9.00-17.00!

Geospatial technologies and mapping used to be specialist work, but
nowadays location (awareness) and maps are becoming part of many
products/projects/applications, which usually use only a small subset of
the possibilities the data and software offer.

The geospatial devroom is the place to talk about open, geo-/spatial
related data and software and their community and ecosystem. This includes
standards and tools, e.g. for spatial databases, and online mapping,
geospatial services, used for collecting, storing, delivering, analysing,
and visualizing purposes.

We welcome submissions about:

* Web and desktop GIS applications;

* Collaborative editing / versioning of geodata and metadata;

* Interoperable geospatial web services and specifications;

* Collection of data using sensors / UAVs / satellites;

* Geo-analytic algorithms / libraries;

* Geospatial extensions for classical databases (indexes, operations) and
dedicated databases;

* Big geospatial data processing, distributed and scalable GIS applications
in the Cloud;

* Geospatial information and Smart Cities, IoT and
Automotive/Autonomous-connected vehicles

* Volunteered Geographic information - Crowdsourced geodata - OpenStreetMap


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/FOSDEM19

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 Saturday **1st December 2018**. 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! Want to
