FOSS4G 2023 academic track

FOSS4G 2023 Academic Track

Following an established tradition, FOSS4G organizes an Academic Track which will run over the three days of the Conference. The Scientific Committee of FOSS4G 2023 invites original research contributions addressing any topic or domain connected to Open Geospatial Software, including (but not limited to) Open Hardware, Open GIScience, Open Geospatial Data, Spatial Data Sharing Systems, Open (Geo)Education, Participatory Mapping, Digital Twin Earth. Given the European location of this year’s FOSS4G, in their research works authors are strongly invited to make use of data produced by European initiatives such as INSPIRE and Copernicus.

All types of papers are welcome, such as on results achieved, case studies, work in progress, reviews and demos. We discourage, however, mere presentations of technology or use cases without properly justifying originality against the scientific state of the art and without particular novelty. Contributions from PhD students and early-stage researchers are particularly encouraged.

In the evaluation of proposals, the Scientific Committee will pay particular attention to the reproducibility of the research (where this is applicable). Reproducibility is ensured when the research makes all artifacts (input data, computational steps, methods and code) openly available to obtain consistent results. When available, the code shall be released under an open source license.
