Academic GeoForAll Track (organised by ISPRS, OSGeo and ICA)

DESCRIPTION

Following an established tradition, FOSS4G organizes an Academic Track which will run over the days of the Conference. FOSS4G invites original research contributions scientific papers dealing with Open Software, Open Hardware, Open Science, Open Data, Spatial Data Sharing Systems, Participatory Mapping and Internet of Things. All types of papers are welcome, such as on results achieved, case studies, work in progress, and demos. We discourage, however, mere presentations of technology or use cases without properly justifying originality against the scientific state of the art and without particular novelty.

SUBMISSION

The submission procedure is divided in two steps.

Step 1

At the first step authors are invited to submit abstracts 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 step two.

Step 2

If the abstract is accepted the authors are invited to submit the corresponding paper dealing with original and unpublished research.

The papers will be published in the Proceedings of the GeoForAll Track, which are “The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences”. Please pay attention that accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings provided at least one author is registered for the Conference before the early registration date. The Proceedings will be available at the first day of the Conference. All papers should be formatted as per ISPRS author's guidelines. (download here the templates: odt, docx and pdf)
