Regular Session and Academic Track proposals due

A reminder to all FOSS4G attendees – the proposal submission deadline for both the Academic Track and Regular Sessions is next Tuesday, April 15th. For the Regular Sessions, we strongly recommend reviewing our advice for successful proposals before submitting.

The community voting on the Regular Sessions will directly follow the deadline, April 18th to 28th.

Travel Grant Announcement

We realize that traveling to and attending a conference can be expensive, and that not everyone who uses or develops open source software has provided funding to pay their way or the means to pay for it themselves. To make sure that as many deserving people as possible can attend FOSS4G, we’re creating a travel grant program with funds to cover registration and travel costs. Watch for details coming soon.

One additional reminder: Early Bird Registration is open!

About FOSS4G

Put on by OSGeo, the annual FOSS4G conference is the premiere global gathering for people working with and creating open source geospatial software. It brings together developers, users, decision makers, and observers from a broad spectrum of organizations and fields of operation for six days of workshops, presentations, discussions, and cooperation. From this melting pot of great spatial ideas and industry flow numerous successful geospatial products, standards and protocols.

FOSS4G has been held all over the world and draws attendees from over 40 countries. Nottingham, England hosted the conference in 2013. In 2014, Portland, Oregon, USA will host FOSS4G’s tenth year.

About OSGeo

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation was founded in 2006 to support and build the highest-quality open source geospatial software. The foundation’s goal is to encourage the use and collaborative development of community-led projects, data development and education. Many projects live under the OSGeo umbrella, including FOSS4G.

About PDX OSGeo – Portland Area and Oregon OSGeo Chapter

The PDX-OSGeo chapter of OSGeo has been meeting, discussing and promoting the use of open source geospatial technology since 2009. Chapter members often organize or present on open source software at regional geospatial conferences. PDX is the airport code and like the PDX airport, the group has a wide catchment area.
