Version francophone à https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G-BE_2017_Call_for_Papers/fr
FOSS4G conferences gather developers and users of Open Source geospatial software from around the world to discuss new directions, exciting implementations, and growing business opportunities in this domain. Recent years have seen substantial changes in the geospatial industry. One of those changes has been the growth in maturity and adoption of Free and Open Source solutions. In many cases organizations are using a mixture of open and closed source solutions.
We will share knowledge and experiences during the whole event through presentations and demonstrations with 25 minutes each at most.
French and Dutch version of this call for papers are available on the website. (http://2017.foss4g.be)
