  1. Collaborative Web-Based Mapping of Real-Time Flight Simulator and Sensor Data - Rabih Dagher, Cristian Gadea, Bogdan Ionescu, Dan Ionescu and Robin Tropper
  2. MapWindow Modeler - A Modular Spatial Modeling Environment for GIS - Brian Marchionni, Daniel P. Ames, Harold Dunsford
  3. Media Mapping: Using Georeferenced Images and Audio to provide supporting information for the Analysis of Environmental Sensor Datasets - Phil Bartie, Simon Kingham
  4. MapWindow 6.0: An Extensible Architecture for Cartographic Symbology - Harold A. Dunsford Jr., Dr. Daniel P. Ames P.E.
  5. A Data System for Visualizing 4-D Atmospheric CO2 Models and Data - Tyler A. Erickson, Anna M. Michalak, John C. Lin
  6. Use of Cloud computing in impact assessment of climate change - Kwang Soo Kim, Doug MacKenzie
  7. Development of Track Log & POI Management System using Free and Open Source Software - Daisuke Yoshida, Xianfeng Song and Venkatesh Raghavan
  8. Geoprocessing in the Clouds - Bastian Baranski, Bastian Schäffer, Richard Redweik
  9. User-friendly interactive WPS programming - Raffaele de Amicis, Giuseppe Conti, Bruno Simões, Stefano Piffer

  11. Images analysis improvement by variational segmentation in GRASS GIS - Alfonso Vitti, Paolo Zatelli
  12. Wetland Ecosystem Computational Model Sharing and Integration based on Open Standards - Min Feng, Shuguang Liu

25 full paper submissions have been received. They were submitted to a blind peer review process, that resulted in 87 completed reviews, with an average of more than 3 reviews per paper. The 12 selected papers will be presented on October 22th, in 3 sessions, and afterwards submitted to publication. This very selective process makes the FOSS4G academic track a more and more reputed and visible event in the geospatial scientific comunity. Nevertheless, the FOSS4G 2009 academic track will bring together researchers, developers, users and practitioners carrying out research and development in the geospatial and the free and open source fields and willing to share original and recent research developments and experiences.

Good papers submitted to the academic track but not selected could be presented in the general track, if the public has positively voted on it. Final abstract selections will be announced on July 20, 2009. So stay tuned!

The FOSS4G 2009 LOC and the academic track chairs want to sincerely thank the authors and reviewers for their support to the organisation of the FOSS4G 2009 conference.
