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
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 purposes.
We welcome submissions (projects, demo's, use cases, code wizardry, etc) :
Web and desktop GIS applications;
Interoperable geospatial web services and specifications;
Collection of data using sensors / UAVs / satellites;
Geo-analytic algorithms & libraries;
Spatial extensions for classical databases (indexes, operations) and dedicated databases;
Big Geospatial Data processing, distributed and scalable in the Cloud;
Geospatial intelligence for Smart Cities, IoT and Automotive;
Volunteered & Crowdsourced data examples with e.g. OpenStreetMap
.... or something geospatial we did not think of !
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.
