The Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) conference is reaching out to speakers interested in presenting at the 2011 conference that will be held during September 12 – 16 in Denver, Colorado, USA. FOSS4G is an international conference focused on open source geospatial software.
Users and developers are encouraged to present their latest projects and software development work to demonstrate the power of open source geospatial solutions. The organisers are looking for a good mix of content for all levels of ability and experience with open source. In addition to high-caliber sessions for developers, there are plans for several workshops and sessions that will welcome non-technical decision makers to the power, capability and compelling business case for open source geospatial software.
Presentation topics will include case studies of open source applications, benchmarks of performance between different components, visualisation tips and tricks and new tool developments, hacks and mashups. In addition to the core focus on free and open source software, this year’s conference will also feature a major focus on free and open data. Content may cover systems that are solely open source or a combination of open and closed source solutions.
Proposals can be submitted online at https://2011.foss4g.org/program/.
