=== Abstract ===
 +
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a non-profit international organization created in early 2006 to support and promote the collaborative development of geospatial open source software (GFOSS). OSGeo provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration. The foundation's projects are all freely available and usable under an OSI-certified open source license.
  
On this page, two separate events are discussed: a proposal for a presentation, and a proposal for a workshop.  
+
In the first 45min of the workshop Open Source software and data providers will give lighnting-talk style presentations of 3 minutes and 3 slides stating:
 +
* Where do I come from, what is my role
 +
* What I want or have to do
 +
* What are the blockers preventing me from getting it done
 +
Each presentation focuses on the relevant INSPIRE capabilities of the software or the INSPIRE needs for the data provision and the potential issues and blockers resulting from the current version of the directive.  
  
The purpose of the presentation is to give a good overview of INSPIRE-readiness of the OSGeo projects, with an intended audience of general users.  
+
The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to a round table dialog between all participants.  
  
The workshop, on the other hand, aims to give a quick overview of each (represented) OSGeo project and where it stands in relation to the INSPIRE technical guidelines, followed by a round-table dialog between OSGeo developers and JRC INSPIRE Technical Committee members about issues raised.
 
  
Please note that if you like to participate in both events, each has its own list of participants. If you're enlisting as a participant this would imply further commitment, e.g. to assist in the preparation of slides and paper and if possible, presence at the conference as a speaker.
+
The following topics will guide through the dialog:
 +
# Maturity of the standards
 +
# Maturity of the software
 +
# Maturity andf correctness of the data
 +
# Implementability of the INSPIRE directive
 +
# Degrees of freedom in the implementation
 +
# Complexity of INSPIRE technical guidance and OGC standards

+
Each presentation focuses on the relevant INSPIRE capabilities of the
 +
software or the INSPIRE needs for the data provision and the potential
 +
issues and blockers resulting from the current version of the directive.
  
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation, or OSGeo, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support and promote the collaborative development of open source geospatial software, data and education. The foundation provides organizational, legal and financial support to the broader open source geospatial community. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit. OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.
+
The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to a round table
 +
dialog between all participants.
  
Since the earliest beginning of INSPIRE open source developers have been involved with implementing systems which eventually have to satisfy INSPIRE requirements. Users have requested new features and capabilities to enable their software packages to address requirements resulting from the INSPIRE directive. Developers in turn have given technical feedback to the makers of the directive. As a result INSPIRE over time has evolved into an implementable real-world architecture.  
+
We are very interested in hearing what you have to contribute and
 +
guarantee that you will take away a lot of new ideas and hear a lot of
 +
valuable experience from others.
  
Many members of the OSGeo development teams are located in Europe, and many of them are actively involved in implementing INSPIRE services and geo-portals. There has been a lot of volunteered and financial contribution to OSGeo projects to help implement the official INSPIRE specifications. With the help of many testers, users and community members, OSGeo projects are offering better INSPIRE support year after year.
+
Please let me know if you will participate, either actively with a short
 +
presentation or just coming to the event. Slides are optional, just talk
 +
a few minutes. Please also feel free to forward this invitation to your
 +
colleagues.
  
This presentation is focused on the introduction of various popular OSGeo projects, which are used for particular tasks within the INSPIRE infrastructure. The presentation will reference certified OSGeo projects as well as projects from the broader OSGeo ecosystem which have not passed the incubation process yet. Each project will summarize the achievements over the last year of development with respect to INSPIRE and include a short report on future developments. This will provide a comprehensive overview of features already available today as well as features in the OSGeo community pipeline which will have direct impact on their possible usage for INSPIRE.
+
Thank you for your interest,

== Workshop proposal ==
+
--
The proposing team suggests to implement this workshop in a barcamp style within the conference. This will probably attract a more diverse group of people and allow for more dynamic communication which is one of the most important aspects required to really get INSPIRE implemented. The aim is to get developers and project leads from OSGeo and professionals involved with INSPIRE around one table and shed light on each other's world.

From the conference website:
 
  
''Pre-conference workshops will take place on the 23/24 June. Each workshop or tutorial may be proposed for a single 90-minute session. A typical conference participant may register for up to four 90-minute workshops or tutorials during the workshop day. All workshops and tutorials will be open to all conference participants at no additional cost, however a daily fee will be charged for those attending workshops only.''

The summary slide set of the workshop is available:

Abstract

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a non-profit international organization created in early 2006 to support and promote the collaborative development of geospatial open source software (GFOSS). OSGeo provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration. The foundation's projects are all freely available and usable under an OSI-certified open source license.

In the first 45min of the workshop Open Source software and data providers will give lighnting-talk style presentations of 3 minutes and 3 slides stating:

  • Where do I come from, what is my role
  • What I want or have to do
  • What are the blockers preventing me from getting it done

Each presentation focuses on the relevant INSPIRE capabilities of the software or the INSPIRE needs for the data provision and the potential issues and blockers resulting from the current version of the directive.

The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to a round table dialog between all participants.


The following topics will guide through the dialog:

  1. Maturity of the standards
  2. Maturity of the software
  3. Maturity andf correctness of the data
  4. Implementability of the INSPIRE directive
  5. Degrees of freedom in the implementation
  6. Complexity of INSPIRE technical guidance and OGC standards
  7. INSPIRE implementing rules, international and national standards
  8. Communication channels between OSGeo and INSPIRE
  9. How to contribute to INSPIRE Maintenance Presentation by Vanda Nunes de Lima

Practical follow-ups

  1. Setting up Wiki pages (multilingual) to make INSPIRE documentation more readable
  2. How to test and validate INSPIRE compliance
  3. How to change/simplify INSPIRE technical guidance in practice
  4. How to contribute to INSPIRE maintenance
  5. Automation of INSPIRE adoption through support in the various software packages
  6. How an implicit support for INSPIRE in any software will give a boost to the adoption of the directive even outside EU
  7. Automation of INSPIRE adoption through support in the various software packages

Notes on Workshop Description and Goals

The session will involve short presentation (lightning talks) with a follow-up dialog, potentially in sub groups. Participants should bring a computer, tablet or smartphone to the workshop to be able to participate in Wiis, mailing lists, web sites, Twittter, and so on.


Notes on Intended Audience and any Required Skills or Interests

  • Data providers who have to implement INSPIRE
  • Open Source Software developers
  • Businesses providing support for Open Source software
  • Academia
  • INSPIRE Representatives (Who is that exactly? If nobody shows up we will finally know that this role has not been implemented)

Invitation Mail

Dear ...,
OSGeo is organizing a 90 minute round table dialog at the INSPIRE
conference in Florence [1]. During the first 45min of the workshop Open
Source software providers and data producers / publishers will give  3
minute lightning-talk style presentations with 3 slides stating:
* Where do I come from, what is my role
* What I want or have to do
* What are the blockers preventing me from getting it done

Each presentation focuses on the relevant INSPIRE capabilities of the
software or the INSPIRE needs for the data provision and the potential
issues and blockers resulting from the current version of the directive.

The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to a round table
dialog between all participants.

We are very interested in hearing what you have to contribute and
guarantee that you will take away a lot of new ideas and hear a lot of
valuable experience from others.

Please let me know if you will participate, either actively with a short
presentation or just coming to the event. Slides are optional, just talk
a few minutes. Please also feel free to forward this invitation to your
colleagues.

Thank you for your interest,
...
