Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Suchith Anand
Thanks Mark for the query. Yes, This is specifically for awarding the best presentations/posters of students at FOSS4G conference. It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

Best wishes,

Suchith

Dear Mark
These are prizes for the best presentations or posters of young authors at the conference. They are given at the closing session and there will be a jury at the conference evaluating posters and presentations.
It is different from the travel grants.
Best,
Maria

Dear All,

Thank you for this!

Suchith, can you help clarify the differences between this program and the Travel Grant Program please? I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Let us know what further information you require/want to discuss too!

Thanks!

Mark

Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Suchith Anand
It is good point Mark. I want to get ideas/inputs from everyone before we decide the exact amount for the student prizes. May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

For local FOSS4G events maybe the aim should be 500 USD budget for the student awards. We will not be doing travel grants for local FOSS4G events as the idea is to encourage more local events to happen in the future.

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi Suchith,

Can I query the amount of money involved here? I think that $3,500 for prizes is a bit too large, especially considering the environment that we’re in. Can I suggest/discuss that we parcel $2k at least from the GeoForAll budget, to support widening participation through the Travel Grant Program, with the remainder on awards?

This seems more equitable and would support the mission more aptly in my opinion.

Thanks!

Mark

I agree broadly with the below - Generally, I’d advise against large monetary prizes, given the current climate I think widening participation is a higher value for our community (this is my personal view). I think offering high value prizes in lieu of a travel grant isn’t the right way to go - I think some monetary compensation is good - but the absolute max should be $250 IMHO.

With the figures, will this mean $2,500 for the TGP or $2,000. We’re looking at scrambling for as much money as possible for grants (and are currently discussing ways of maximising the value + sponsorship for this too!).

Over to the lists :-)

Ta,

Mark

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Suchith Anand
+ 1 Mark. I get the logic of this .  We will limit the max award for best prize for any student to  $250   , so the rest can be used for travel grants. One suggestion I have is if the LOC can explore if it is possible to arrange digital certificates to all students  who have an accepted paper at FOSS4G Global. It will be good as they can then show it as recognition.  

Best wishes,

Suchith

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

In reply to this post by Suchith Anand
Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

> Suchith, can you help clarify the differences between this program and the Travel Grant Program please? I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

But before we make this request to OSGeo Board , I would like to know if FOSS4G 2018 LOC  in Dar Es Salaam will like to give Student awards (max 3500 USD in total for global event) and is there anyone in the LOC willing to coordinate this. Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible. If there are any other FOSS4G local events happening in 2018 and wish to give student awards , the LOC can contact the GeoForAll mail lists informing their interest and contact person and we can plan to allocate the rest (maximum 1000 USD per local event - so maximum 4 local events will be supported per year)

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Suchith Anand
It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Maria Antonia Brovelli

Dear All

in my opinion we are making a bit of confusion. On one side the is the TGP, on the other side the "Best paper and best poster awards", that are meant to award the excellence of the work that students present at the conference. They are different. 

Best.

Maria

Oggetto: Re: [OSGeo-Conf] [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions
 
It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Mark Iliffe-2
Hi Maria,

To simplify any confusion, I think $3.5k on prizes is excessive, with $2.5k being better spent on widening participation through targeting students who would not be able to access FOSS4G.

IMHO This should be under the TGP which should focus on bringing high calibre students to FOSS4G, not rewarding those already here. Regardless of this, tiers of $400, $250, and $100 for first, second, and third respectively seems more than appropriate - but this at the discretion of the GeoForAll committee!

We already have a plan in action for pushing the broader TGP for FOSS4G in Dar. If those on the GeoForAll committee could let the LOC know about how they’d like to proceed, we can plan and budget accordingly.

Thanks all!!

Mark

Dear All

in my opinion we are making a bit of confusion. On one side the is the TGP, on the other side the "Best paper and best poster awards", that are meant to award the excellence of the work that students present at the conference. They are different. 

Best.

It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible. If there are any other FOSS4G local events happening in 2018 and wish to give student awards , the LOC can contact the GeoForAll mail lists informing their interest and contact person and we can plan to allocate the rest (maximum 1000 USD per local event - so maximum 4 local events will be supported per year)

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Maria Antonia Brovelli

Mark, I partially agree with you. 

What is the amount of the prizes is something that GeoForAll has to discuss and ask to the Board but it is not for allowing people in attending (yes, it can help, but this is not the aim of the award).

Therefore, please, leave them separate as they are. This are GeoForAll awards for the best students (bachelor/master/PhD). The occasion can be the FOSS4G but in principle it is not mandatory.

Best,

Maria

Hi Maria,

To simplify any confusion, I think $3.5k on prizes is excessive, with $2.5k being better spent on widening participation through targeting students who would not be able to access FOSS4G.

IMHO This should be under the TGP which should focus on bringing high calibre students to FOSS4G, not rewarding those already here. Regardless of this, tiers of $400, $250, and $100 for first, second, and third respectively seems more than appropriate - but this at the discretion of the GeoForAll committee!

We already have a plan in action for pushing the broader TGP for FOSS4G in Dar. If those on the GeoForAll committee could let the LOC know about how they’d like to proceed, we can plan and budget accordingly.

Thanks all!!

Mark

Dear All

in my opinion we are making a bit of confusion. On one side the is the TGP, on the other side the "Best paper and best poster awards", that are meant to award the excellence of the work that students present at the conference. They are different. 

Best.

Maria

It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible. If there are any other FOSS4G local events happening in 2018 and wish to give student awards , the LOC can contact the GeoForAll mail lists informing their interest and contact person and we can plan to allocate the rest (maximum 1000 USD per local event - so maximum 4 local events will be supported per year)

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Mark Iliffe-2
Thanks for the clarifications Maria - given this, my recommendation to the board will be to either A. reassign budget from this to make the award more appropriate to the local context and support a widening of access; or, if A is not possible B. lower the sum award to be given at FOSS4G in 2018. 

I don't want to be seen as refusing money or wider assistance, but I consider the amount of money for prizes to be out of keeping with the message and optics that FOSS4G in Dar es Salaam is conveying. My fear is that we are open to the suggestion that we are focusing on a rewarding a constituency that can make it to FOSS4G, neglecting those that cannot - hence my previous desire to utilize the fund to widen participation. If this isn't possible (and I hope that it is!) I would veto this amount of money to be freely given for the reasons above.

Best,

Mark

Mark, I partially agree with you. 

What is the amount of the prizes is something that GeoForAll has to discuss and ask to the Board but it is not for allowing people in attending (yes, it can help, but this is not the aim of the award).

Therefore, please, leave them separate as they are. This are GeoForAll awards for the best students (bachelor/master/PhD). The occasion can be the FOSS4G but in principle it is not mandatory.

Best,

Maria

It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible. If there are any other FOSS4G local events happening in 2018 and wish to give student awards , the LOC can contact the GeoForAll mail lists informing their interest and contact person and we can plan to allocate the rest (maximum 1000 USD per local event - so maximum 4 local events will be supported per year)

Thanks for the clarifications Maria - given this, my recommendation to the board will be to either A. reassign budget from this to make the award more appropriate to the local context and support a widening of access; or, if A is not possible B. lower the sum award to be given at FOSS4G in 2018. 

I don't want to be seen as refusing money or wider assistance, but I consider the amount of money for prizes to be out of keeping with the message and optics that FOSS4G in Dar es Salaam is conveying. My fear is that we are open to the suggestion that we are focusing on a rewarding a constituency that can make it to FOSS4G, neglecting those that cannot - hence my previous desire to utilize the fund to widen participation. If this isn't possible (and I hope that it is!) I would veto this amount of money to be freely given for the reasons above.

Mark

Mark, I partially agree with you. 

What is the amount of the prizes is something that GeoForAll has to discuss and ask to the Board but it is not for allowing people in attending (yes, it can help, but this is not the aim of the award).

Therefore, please, leave them separate as they are. This are GeoForAll awards for the best students (bachelor/master/PhD). The occasion can be the FOSS4G but in principle it is not mandatory.

Best,

Maria

Hi Maria,

To simplify any confusion, I think $3.5k on prizes is excessive, with $2.5k being better spent on widening participation through targeting students who would not be able to access FOSS4G.

IMHO This should be under the TGP which should focus on bringing high calibre students to FOSS4G, not rewarding those already here. Regardless of this, tiers of $400, $250, and $100 for first, second, and third respectively seems more than appropriate - but this at the discretion of the GeoForAll committee!

We already have a plan in action for pushing the broader TGP for FOSS4G in Dar. If those on the GeoForAll committee could let the LOC know about how they’d like to proceed, we can plan and budget accordingly.

Thanks all!!

Mark

Dear All

in my opinion we are making a bit of confusion. On one side the is the TGP, on the other side the "Best paper and best poster awards", that are meant to award the excellence of the work that students present at the conference. They are different. 

Best.

It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible.

R: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Maria Antonia Brovelli
In reply to this post by Mark Iliffe-2
Mark, I see your point. Therefore as GeoForAll we can ask 1000 $ for three awards to students at FOSS4G in Dar (something like 500 $, 300 $ and 200 $).
Good. Talk to you tomorrow at the LOC meeting.
Have a good night
Maria

Oggetto: Re: [OSGeo-Conf] [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Thanks for the clarifications Maria - given this, my recommendation to the board will be to either A. reassign budget from this to make the award more appropriate to the local context and support a widening of access; or, if A is not possible B. lower the sum award to be given at FOSS4G in 2018. 

I don't want to be seen as refusing money or wider assistance, but I consider the amount of money for prizes to be out of keeping with the message and optics that FOSS4G in Dar es Salaam is conveying. My fear is that we are open to the suggestion that we are focusing on a rewarding a constituency that can make it to FOSS4G, neglecting those that cannot - hence my previous desire to utilize the fund to widen participation. If this isn't possible (and I hope that it is!) I would veto this amount of money to be freely given for the reasons above.

Best,

Mark

Mark, I partially agree with you. 

What is the amount of the prizes is something that GeoForAll has to discuss and ask to the Board but it is not for allowing people in attending (yes, it can help, but this is not the aim of the award).

Therefore, please, leave them separate as they are. This are GeoForAll awards for the best students (bachelor/master/PhD). The occasion can be the FOSS4G but in principle it is not mandatory.

Best,

Maria

Hi Maria,

To simplify any confusion, I think $3.5k on prizes is excessive, with $2.5k being better spent on widening participation through targeting students who would not be able to access FOSS4G.

IMHO This should be under the TGP which should focus on bringing high calibre students to FOSS4G, not rewarding those already here. Regardless of this, tiers of $400, $250, and $100 for first, second, and third respectively seems more than appropriate - but this at the discretion of the GeoForAll committee!

We already have a plan in action for pushing the broader TGP for FOSS4G in Dar. If those on the GeoForAll committee could let the LOC know about how they’d like to proceed, we can plan and budget accordingly.

Thanks all!!

Mark

Dear All

in my opinion we are making a bit of confusion. On one side the is the TGP, on the other side the "Best paper and best poster awards", that are meant to award the excellence of the work that students present at the conference. They are different. 

Best.

It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

> Suchith, can you help clarify the differences between this program and the Travel Grant Program please? I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible. If there are any other FOSS4G local events happening in 2018 and wish to give student awards , the LOC can contact the GeoForAll mail lists informing their interest and contact person and we can plan to allocate the rest (maximum 1000 USD per local event - so maximum 4 local events will be supported per year)

Good. Talk to you tomorrow at the LOC meeting.

Oggetto: Re: [OSGeo-Conf] [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Thanks for the clarifications Maria - given this, my recommendation to the board will be to either A. reassign budget from this to make the award more appropriate to the local context and support a widening of access; or, if A is not possible B. lower the sum award to be given at FOSS4G in 2018. 

I don't want to be seen as refusing money or wider assistance, but I consider the amount of money for prizes to be out of keeping with the message and optics that FOSS4G in Dar es Salaam is conveying. My fear is that we are open to the suggestion that we are focusing on a rewarding a constituency that can make it to FOSS4G, neglecting those that cannot - hence my previous desire to utilize the fund to widen participation. If this isn't possible (and I hope that it is!) I would veto this amount of money to be freely given for the reasons above.

Best,

Mark

Mark, I partially agree with you. 

What is the amount of the prizes is something that GeoForAll has to discuss and ask to the Board but it is not for allowing people in attending (yes, it can help, but this is not the aim of the award).

Therefore, please, leave them separate as they are. This are GeoForAll awards for the best students (bachelor/master/PhD). The occasion can be the FOSS4G but in principle it is not mandatory.

Best,

Maria

Hi Maria,

To simplify any confusion, I think $3.5k on prizes is excessive, with $2.5k being better spent on widening participation through targeting students who would not be able to access FOSS4G.

IMHO This should be under the TGP which should focus on bringing high calibre students to FOSS4G, not rewarding those already here. Regardless of this, tiers of $400, $250, and $100 for first, second, and third respectively seems more than appropriate - but this at the discretion of the GeoForAll committee!

We already have a plan in action for pushing the broader TGP for FOSS4G in Dar. If those on the GeoForAll committee could let the LOC know about how they’d like to proceed, we can plan and budget accordingly.

Thanks all!!

Mark

Dear All

in my opinion we are making a bit of confusion. On one side the is the TGP, on the other side the "Best paper and best poster awards", that are meant to award the excellence of the work that students present at the conference. They are different. 

Best.

It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

Best wishes,

Suchith

Hi,

Suchith, what especially do you mean with "Student Travel programme" ?

Yet, we have a "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) that also adresses to
Students (but not only!). In order to keep things clear and simple (and
to avoid that the same people might participate in the "TGP" and "the
Student TGP") I would suggest not to have two different travel grant
programms.

Perhaps this was just an incorrect formulation and we mean the same TGP
;-) ?

In general I agree with Steven and Mark not to have too high prices -
the value of participation of many is much higher, than letting one
student return back home very happy from a FOSS4G ... ;-)

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Hi,

For FOSS4G-Europe we are considering asking for 1 000€ which will be split among 10 students awarded. This will mean the ticket cost to attend FOSS4G-Eu for them (100€).

We intend to have a track for them so they can expose their work and not only have a poster and a mention.

Regards,
María A.

In reply to this post by Suchith Anand
Suchith,

last year the TGP committee was run by members of LOC and OSGeo CC - so
the procedure is clear and worked fine in our eyes. As we anyhow grant
some students, I would prefer not to seperate extra 2k inside TGP
especially for students. this justm akes thingsm ore complicated.

If you can trust the TGP committee, that it will give grants to as many
people as possible *including* several students, everything is fine in
my eyes. And of course, TGP committee is open for participation ;-)

> It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] R: FOSS4G Academic Track: deadlines extensions

Suchith Anand
Thanks Till for this information. I now understand. I will then remove the 2k request for students TGP if it is complicating things.  I thank you and everyone in TGP committee for your time and efforts to make the travel grants program possible.

Best wishes,

Suchith

Suchith,

last year the TGP committee was run by members of LOC and OSGeo CC - so
the procedure is clear and worked fine in our eyes. As we anyhow grant
some students, I would prefer not to seperate extra 2k inside TGP
especially for students. this justm akes thingsm ore complicated.

If you can trust the TGP committee, that it will give grants to as many
people as possible *including* several students, everything is fine in
my eyes. And of course, TGP committee is open for participation ;-)

> It will be the same "Travel Grant programme" (TGP) and the criteria will be defined by the LOC as they think is appropriate. The aim of the GeoForAll student travel budget (say 2k USD) will be to add into this pot and give more flexibility for the LOC to provide opportunity for more students to participate at FOSS4G 2018. I understand TGP is for anyone to apply but this 2k USD from GeoForAll budget for supporting  student travel can be used specifically to support more students using the same TGP criteria.  The LOC need not give the money directly to the students .  For example, once LOC know they have 2000 USD in this pot , they can bulk book student accomodation earlier (this might help in getting accommodation at lower costs ) thereby getting more impact for the same amount and hopefully benefiting more students (maybe 40 students!). I leave it to LOC to decide details as they will have more ideas .

>> I agree. I was thinking aloud on the list so I can get more ideas coming in :-)
>>
>> We want to get ideas/inputs from everyone before we decide the exact amount for the student prizes. May be we should aim for 1000 USD maximum for each global FOSS4G event for the student prizes (First , second and third prize) with certificate . That way we may be able to provide more for other FOSS4G events also as needed. The Travel Grant program for the global FOSS4G event is important , so maybe the solution is 1000 USD for student prize and 2000 USD for Student Travel grant to support widening participation. Is that okay?
>>
>> For local FOSS4G events maybe the aim should be 500 USD budget for the student awards. We will not be doing travel grants for local FOSS4G events as the idea is to encourage more local events to happen in the future.
>>
>> I will wait for inputs ideas from everyone . If you all can send before 22nd Nov it is greatly appreciated as I can then use the new estimates to propose GeoForAll budget including all these.

It is fully upto the LOC to decide the criteria for this and plan this. It will need to be given at the closing ceremony and it will be good if someone from the LOC (after the event) sends us some photos and short blogpost for the OSGeo website. The bigger aim is to get more students to submit the work for FOSS4G conferences as well as providing recognition for the excellent work of students.

>> Suchith, can you help clarify the differences between this program and the Travel Grant Program please? I just want to ensure that the two differing programs are coordinated and that we’re targeting different constituencies with the funding - I believe that the two programs are targeting similar constituencies in groups that need to have their participation widened, so understanding GeoForAll’s specific guidelines will help guide the LOC in the appropriate approach. In that respect, with the LOC, I’m happy for this to be ran within the LOC, as a LOC effort too.

>> We are now working to put proposal for GeoForAll budget and OSGeo student awards at FOSS4G conferences are important way for us to support excellent students. It will be great to have these awards given at FOSS4G Dar.
>>
>> My suggestion is  that 7500 USD in the budget is kept for OSGeo student awards at FOSS4G  conferences (global or local). These awards will be decided and given by the FOSS4G LoC. But before we make this request to OSGeo Board , I would like to know if FOSS4G 2018 LOC  in Dar Es Salaam will like to give Student awards (max 3500 USD in total for global event) and is there anyone in the LOC willing to coordinate this. Unless there is someone in LOC willing to do this, we cannot make this possible. If there are any other FOSS4G local events happening in 2018 and wish to give student awards , the LOC can contact the GeoForAll mail lists informing their interest and contact person and we can plan to allocate the rest (maximum 1000 USD per local event - so maximum 4 local events will be supported per year)
>>
>> My question is - Is there any one in FOSS4G 2018 LOC and local FOSS4G conferences happening in 2018 interested to give student awards and willing to be point of contact for this. Ideally, if the LOCs can match fund this with external funding the better for expanding impact .

This is a good idea to ensure more students get opportunity to present their work at FOSS4G -EU . Thanks.

Best wishes,

Hi,

For FOSS4G-Europe we are considering asking for 1 000€ which will be split among 10 students awarded. This will mean the ticket cost to attend FOSS4G-Eu for them (100€).

We intend to have a track for them so they can expose their work and not only have a poster and a mention.

Regards,
María A.
