OSGeo/OSM talk accepted at C3DIS

adam steer-2
hey folks

I pitched a talk about the growing OSGeo Oceania community at the C3DIS conference (http://www.c3dis.com) and it was accepted as an oral presentation.

Why? C3DIS is all about computational and data intensive science - and much of that relies on the geospatial tools and data this community builds and maintains. So it’s a bit of a PR / community building exercise; and timing is a couple weeks ahead of the scheduled call for 2019 FOSS4G SotM Oceania papers. it’s also introducing our new organisation - so some timing is a bit ambitious.

Title and abstract below, I’ll build a revealJS-based talk here: https://github.com/adamsteer/c3dis2019 - so please feel free to dump relevant thoughts as issues; and help shape the conversation we want to have with the ‘big science computers’ community.

Cheers

Adam

Title: The open geospatial community in Oceania

Abstract: 
The Open Geospatial Foundation (OSgeo) and the Open Streetmap Foundation (OSMF) have been mainstays in support of; and advocacy for; open geospatial software and data for many years.

OSGeo supports foundational geospatial tooling used across the eResearch community - from invisible infrastructure (GDAL; Proj4; pyWPS; Zoo-WPS ) to prominent user-focussed, user facing applications (QGIS, geonode, geoserver, geonetwork, leafletJS; openlayers) - to name just a few.

In 2009, an international conference of the OSGeo foundation was held in Sydney; and after a long hiatus, the community was revived in 2018. The result was a sold-out joint conference of the OSGeo and OSMF communities for the Oceania region in Melbourne. This was both an incredible show of community support, and an incredible showcase of open source innovation in the region.

…and the momentum continues. By the time C3DIS happens, there will be a fully-fledged local OSGeo Oceania organisation, aimed at supporting a regional community of open source geo-developers, geo-users, and geo-enablers - and 2019 conference organisation will be in full swing.

This talk will be about charting the journey of OSGeo Oceania so far, and how the eResearch community in Australia and Oceania can engage with, support, and benefit from this local and global community.

Come and join the party!
