Two days left for submitting abstracts to FOSS4G 2018 (Dar Es Salaam)
I am forwarding this email on behalf of Maria Brovelli, Academic chair for the upcoming FOSS4G 2018 conference in Dar Es Salaam. The conference dates are as follows:
27, 28 AUGUST 2018 : WORKSHOPS 29, 30, 31 AUGUST 2018 : THREE DAY MAIN CONFERENCE 1, 2 SEPTEMBER 2018 : CODE SPRINTS AND COMMUNITY EVENTS
This conference is going to have special concessions for African attendees so you should expect to be able to attend the conference very economically. If you are working in an academic context, note that the call for academic papers is closing in 2 days - see Maria’s message below for details:
The deadline for submitting abstracts to the Academic Track of FOSS4G 2018 (http://2018.foss4g.org/) is approaching (15 February 2018!)
At this first step you have to submit an abstract written in English comprising 500‐800 words and containing sufficient details for evaluation (including the approach, results, concepts, reasons why it should be considered and why it would be interesting for the audience).
The contributions are accepted on the abstract blind review process. Submitted abstracts will be refereed for quality, originality and relevance by the Scientific Committee. Authors will receive feedback and suggestions for improvement to their papers to be submitted in a second step for publication in the International Archives of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (listed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of the Web of Science, SCOPUS, the E/I Compendex,and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)).
