FOSS4G 2009 – More than an international Geospatial Open Source Conference

The conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) will be held from 20-23 October, 2009 in Sydney, Australia. _http://2009.foss4g.org <http://2009.foss4g.org/>_

Growing out of regional Open Source community meetings, the FOSS4G conference has been reborn in recent years as a meeting place for international geospatial experts to gather and discuss the problems and opportunities of the day. With themes ranging from the integration of Open Source with Proprietary systems to the building of Spatial Data Infrastructures and application of Open Geospatial Standards, the conference offers a unique opportunity to tap into the wealth of knowledge and experience available among the Open Source developers, sponsors and geospatial professionals of all persuasions.


    Highlights from FOSS4G 2009 include:

  • The Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP)*: FOSS4G will launch the

OGC's Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP), which demonstrates standards based interoperability between Open Source and Proprietary geospatial applications. It consists of servers with multiple virtual machines, each installed with geospatial applications offering standards based web services. There will be many opportunities to review SDI components, and talk directly to vendors and implementers about the effectiveness of different approaches and components.

  • FOSS4G Live DVD*: Live DVDs, based on the Xubuntu operating system and

including Geospatial Open Source Software, will be given to all delegates. Users can boot a Live DVD on their computer and trial the software without installing or affecting the existing system.

  • Installfest*: The informal Installfest pre-dinner slot will give

delegates the opportunity to meet in a common area and install a wide variety of FOSS software on their laptops, EEPC or any other system they care to bring in. Community members will be on hand to assist with any troubles and provide help and insight into the software.


  • Workshops and Tutorials*: Workshops and Tutorials allow presenters to

lead attendees through applications, integration solutions, or other topics in an interactive environment.


  • Presentations*: The meat of the conference is its presentations.

Drawing on a huge community of local, regional and international experts we will discuss some of the most current and poignant topics in the industry today. Expect to hear honest presentations discussing weaknesses as well as strengths, like the famous Web Map Server performance shootout.


  • Birds of a Feather*: Rooms have been set aside for semi-organised

meetings between like minded groups. Some prominent community initiatives started in prior FOSS4G Birds of a Feather sessions.


  • Code Sprint*: The weekend after FOSS4G is reserved for the Hackers'

Code Sprint. Hackers will be locked in a basement with lots of bandwidth, pizzas and coke. (Well, maybe something better than that, but we don't want to spoil the mystical hacker image).
