Abstracts for presentations are due to on February 15th. You have about a week, so get them in now!
FOSS4G NA is a community conference. It is really your conference. We are working hard to put together the best conference that we can, but the presentations need to come from you.
We have received quite a few good abstracts already, but we can use more. We are looking for all kinds of presentations. Entry level to highly technical, audiences from developers to end users, to mangers.
To a lot of us, open source is normal and just makes sense. In addition to showing off cutting edge projects, there is a great opportunity to present examples of how you are using open source geospatial technology to get your every day work done and why the stability, flexibility and performance of open source products makes good business sense.
If you have something cool to talk about, submit it. If you know of someone else doing something interesting with open source geospatial, push them to submit an abstract. Pitch an idea for a panel, a 5 minute Ignite talk, or a regular presentation. All of the details are in the Call for Presentations.
It has been a tradition with FOSS4G events that the community reviews all of the presentation abstracts and ranks them based on what they would like to see. This year, we are putting a little twist on it. The reviewers will only see the abstracts and won’t know who submitted them.
If you have a good idea for a talk, we want you to submit it regardless of who you are.
