The conference covers five days of Presentations and Workshops covering every aspect of Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial that you’d care to imagine. The content of the programme is developed from the submissions made by the community which is requested via the various Calls for Papers. How to get involved is outlined in these pages.
The theme for 2013 is “Geo for All” which reflects our aim to encourage attendance from anyone considering using open source and geospatial software for the first time. The numerous current initiatives propelling Open Data have highlighted to an even wider audience the benefits of using geospatial data to gain additional insights into their data, Add the current economic climate, and we see interest in open source geospatial solutions grow ever stronger. This conference therefore provides an excellent opportunity to enhance the already vibrant community with users from a diverse range of industries.
We very much hope that you will want to get involved, be it by submitting a proposal for a paper, a demonstration, a deep dive, a training session or a hack theme, and look forward to seeing you in Nottingham!
