The GEOSTAT 2014 Summer School for PhD students and R-sig-geo enthusiasts will be held this year at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), Bergen, Norway in the period 15-22 June 2014 (arrive Sunday to depart Sunday). The topics include: spatial and spatio-temporal data and analysis in R, R as a GIS, spatial data modelling with raster package, visualization of spatial and spatio-temporal data in Google Earth, GRASS GIS and QGIS tutorials, and spatio-temporal geostatistics.

This summer school is limited to 50 participants (two parallel sessions). Selection of candidates is based on a ranking system, which is based on: time of registration, solidarity (participants further away from the venue receive higher ranking), academic record, and contributions to open source projects. The registration costs for the summer school are typically between EUR 300 - 400; these cover the actual costs, no profits are made. The organizers provide no funding/scholarships to participants. Participants from ODA-listed countries, however, can apply for a subsidized price for registration costs.

To register for this summer school please visit the event homepage at:

[http://europe.foss4g.org/2014/ FOSS4G-Europe] is the annual gathering of European Open Source Geospatial Developers, Users and Leaders - at Jacobs University Bremen in the heart of Europe, 15th to 17th of July. A free and open source conference and exhibition that offers geospatial communities, research groups and businesses a place to meet, share ideas and have fun.

This year's conference is under the motto "Independent Innovation for INSPIRE and Big Data", characterizing the independence of the Free and Open Source movement from commercial product interest, and the power of innovation which the worldwide networks of FOSS enthusiasts unleashes. This energy is essential for mastering the challenges we are facing. Among the many ones ahead of us two stand out in particular.

INSPIRE, the European legal framework for a common spatial information basis, is a worldwide unique endeavor to homogenize Spatial Data Infrastructures that are historically heterogeneous, complex, but indispensable assets for the overall prosperity of the societies and economies affected. Actually, INSPIRE's impact reaches far beyond Europe being watched closely by other continents.

Big Data have become a Grand Challenge since acquiring data has become more and more simple and inexpensive. This availability has led to an unprecedented data deluge of sensor, image, simulation, statistics data, and many further information categories. Commonly today, following Doug Laney and IBM, Big Data are characterized by four core features which may occur in isolation or combination:

* Volume - the sheer volume of data; for example, ESA plans to hold 1,000,000,000,000 images under its custody with the Sentinel satellite program.
* Velocity - the sheer speed of data arriving and requiring instantaneous evaluation; for example, NASA EOSDIS deals with five Terabyte of satellite imagery per day.
* Variety - the enormous diversity of data structures; for example, the OGC coverage concept unifies regularly and irregularly gridded data, point clouds, and general meshes.
* Veracity - issues of quality, such as accuracy, trustworthiness, provenance, etc; for example, ocean color analysis with the l2gen program generates for each pixel around 30 quality features - but it is not entirely clear how data consumers can make use of such information.

Incidentally, INSPIRE with its Annex II and III building massively upon coverages also faces Big Data issues. The circle closes.

Exciting discussions, new insights, technology push and application pull, but also pizza, beer and fun we eagerly await for FOSS4G-Europe 2014 - in the end, we all unite under the umbrella of free and open source software crafted diligently for the better of our little planetary village with that neighborhood called Europe.

May the crowd gather!

FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organised by the community for
the community. The goal is to provide open source software developers
and communities a place to meet. Participation and attendance is totally
free, though the organisers gratefully accept donations and sponsorship.
https://fosdem.org/

The FOSDEM team feels it is very important for open source software
developers around the world to be able to meet in “real life”. To this
end, we have set up developer rooms (devrooms) with network/internet
connectivity and projectors where teams can meet and showcase their
projects. devrooms are a place for teams to discuss, hack and publicly
present latest directions, lightning talks, news and discussions. We
believe developers can benefit a lot from these meetings.

This year a team of OSGeo and related community members led by Johan Van
de Wauw is organising Geospatial devroom, packed with talks about web
development, open geodata, mobile platforms, algorithms and much more.

See the full schedule of the Geospatial devroom here:

Talk about OSGeo-Live:

The event has the purpose to bring together project members to make decisions and tackle larger geospatial problems as in previous years:

Vienna (2014)
Boston (2013)
Island Wood (2012)
Montreal (2011)
New York City (2010)
Toronto (2009))

While past code sprints have targeted members of the "C Tribe" (e.g., MapServer, GRASS, GDAL, Proj, PostGIS, MapGuide, OpenLayers), other open source geospatial tribes are welcome to join the sprint.

The event organizer, Azavea, is also proposing that this be a joint code sprint with the Eclipse Foundation's LocationTech working group. There are several developers that work on projects associated with both OSGeo and LocationTech, and we believe it be an opportunity for some healthy exchange and collaboration.

The FOSSGIS conference is the largest German-language conference for Free and Open Source Software for GIS and Free Geodata, hosting approximately 300 participants.

The Conference Committee has just announced the "Call for Papers" for 2015. Since the conference is held in German, the CfP is also in German.

The Program Committee will, however, also consider applications for talks or workshops held in English if they are deeemed to add to the quality of the conference. So if you don't speak German, but are a FOSS/Open Data celebrity, or have a story that only you can tell, please do submit your talk. We are unlikely to be able to provide interpreters, but we'll make sure that you don't get lost at the FOSSGIS conference 2015 in Münster.

Please be aware that you can submit your paper until November, 15. 2014. You can submit your abstract using Pentabarf.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Münster from March 11-13, 2015!

'''What is the European Geoscience Union (EGU)?'''

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the geosciences and the planetary and space sciences for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. It was established in September 2002. It is a non-profit international union of scientists with over 12,500 members from all over the world. Membership is open to individuals who are professionally engaged in or associated with geosciences and planetary and space sciences and related studies, including students and retired seniors. EGU is organised in so called divisions (22), which have specific thematic foci within geosciences.

'''What is an EGU General Assembly ?'''

The annual EGU General Assembly (GA) is the largest and most prominent European geosciences event. This years GA attracted over 12,000 scientists from all over the world, of which more than a quarter are students. The meeting’s sessions, typically over 500, cover a wide range of topics. General Assemblies have around 14,000 submissions (oral presentations and posters). Aside from disciplinary sessions, dealing with the topics covered by each scientific division, the meeting also features Union-wide sessions, including townhall meetings. In 2014 there were 13 such townhall meetings.

Townhall Meetings are official EGU meetings, open for all participants in the conference. During these meetings new initiatives or decisions are announced to a larger audience following an open discussion on the matter. Townhall Meetings last 60 minutes in the evening and take place in the conference centre’s lecture rooms, fit 50 to 350 people, and are announced in the Programme (Information & Schedule Book). As they are staged in the evening after the scientific sessions, Townhalls attract large crowds.

The annual EGU General Assembly (GA) is the largest and most prominent European geosciences event. This years GA attracted over 12,000 scientists from all over the world, of which more than a quarter are students. The meeting’s sessions, typically over 500, cover a wide range of topics. General Assemblies have around 14,000 submissions (oral presentations and posters). Aside from disciplinary sessions, dealing with the topics covered by each scientific division, the meeting also features Union-wide sessions, including townhall meetings. In 2014 there were 13 such townhall meetings.

Townhall Meetings are official EGU meetings, open for all participants in the conference. During these meetings new initiatives or decisions are announced to a larger audience following an open discussion on the matter. Townhall Meetings last 60 minutes in the evening and take place in the conference centre’s lecture rooms, fit 50 to 350 people, and are announced in the Programme (Information & Schedule Book). As they are staged in the evening after the scientific sessions, Townhalls attract large crowds.
