Workshop proposal

It wouldn't be a classic workshop format but rather a barcamp inside the conference. The aim is to put around a table people from OSGeo and people from INSPIRE, in order to understand 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. If you are interested in submitting a workshop proposal, please provide the following information:"

  1. Proposed Workshop Title
  2. Organizer/Contact Person (name, title, address, country, phone, fax, e-mail)
  3. Workshop Description and Goals (250 words or less suitable for posting on the web. Please include in the description if the session will involve lecture, hands-on exercises, group exercises, etc., whether any take-home materials will be supplied and indicate whether participants should bring a laptop computer or anything else to the workshop.)
  4. Intended Audience and any Required Skills or Interests (technicians, managers, policymakers, etc., whether introductory or advanced, what skills if any participants should possess)

The draft idea would be (but feel free to add/modify):

  • Duration 90 minutes
  • Round table (to the aim of smoothing the edges of INSPIRE)
  • Lead developers on one side (various technologies) and members of the INSPIRE Technical Committee on the other
  • 15-20 expected participants
  • 60 minutes of quick presentations (3 minutes / 1 slide each)
  • 30 minutes heated but constructive discussion on the issues raised

Exploratory meeting

G+ hang out on Thursday 14.3 at 4 pm CET
