Call for Papers closed

Welcome to the Call for Presentations FOSS4G Buenos Aires 2021!

If you have developed a free and open source project related to geospatial technologies, if you implemented a FOSS4G solution or product, or participated in a project that uses FOSS, we invite you to participate in our gathering.

Types of Contributions

You can submit three types of proposals to the Call for Papers:

What to contribute

The global FOSS4G is the flagship event of OSGeo and one of the most important global geospatial events of the year. While the focus of the conference revolts around open source software, it is a meeting point where knowledge and experiences are shared, new tools are learned and new relationships are established.

Tips for speakers

The OSGeo community is characterized for its dynamic way of growing and we are proud of welcoming a variety of voices and ideas. If you are considering sending a proposal to our call for papers, consider the following:

  • FOSS4G’s backbone is free and open source, so make sure you clearly indicate what is (are) the open source project(s) essential in your talk

  • If you present new developments or a completely new open source project, make sure you point to its repository(ies) so people can follow up.

  • The more suitable the selections of general and particular topics, and level of technical complexity are, the better shaped the final program will be. Please, help us optimize your time at FOSS4G 2021.

What we expect from you as a speaker

We believe in equality, so all presenters have the same exact amount of time to present their work. Please consider that when preparing your slides and be mindful about the time.

And last, but not least, the success of this event lies in the responsable actions of all participants and organizers alike. If after you have confirmed participation, you or the co-authors are no longer able to present, please let us know as as possible.
