The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2016 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2016) is the twenty fourth event in a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners in relation to novel systems based on geo-spatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems. The conference provides a forum for original research contributions covering all conceptual, design, and implementation aspects of geospatial data ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to data storage and query processing and indexing. The conference is the premier annual event of the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). Researchers, students, and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions to ACM SIGSPATIAL 2016.
Suggested Geospatial-related topics include but are not limited to the following:
Cartography and Geodesy
Computer Graphics Applications
Computer Vision Applications
Distributed and Parallel Algorithms
Geographic Information Retrieval

* Paper Format
Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html . It is important that previous related work (especially appearing in prior editions of the ACM SIGSPATIAL Conference and the ACM SIGSPATIAL workshops/symposia) be appropriately cited. All submissions will be refereed for quality, originality, and relevance by the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be considered for "Best Paper Award."
* Research Papers
Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Submissions are limited to 10 pages. In addition to the regular full-length papers, the Program Committee may accept some as poster papers that will be requested to be shortened to 4 pages.
* Industrial Experience and Systems Papers
Industrial experience and systems papers are invited that describe original industrial experiences, challenges, and applications, as well as systems to be presented during the conference. Industrial Experience and Systems paper submissions are limited to 10 pages — append "(Industrial Paper)" or "(Systems Paper)" to the title as is appropriate. Accepted Industrial Experience and Systems papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
* Demonstration Papers
Authors are invited to submit demo papers describing original demonstrations to be presented at the conference. Submissions are limited to 4 pages — append "(Demo Paper)" to the title. Accepted demo papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
* Vision Papers
Authors are invited to submit vision papers describing visionary ideas to be presented at the conference. Submissions are limited to 4 pages — append "(Vision Paper)" to the title.
At least one author per accepted research, industrial experience and systems, demonstration, or vision paper must register and attend the conference to present the accepted submission. Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the published conference proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the conference proceedings.
The ACM SIGSPATIAL CUP 2016, with prizes, is a geospatial-focused algorithm competition.

Free registrarion period for the [1st gvSIG Festival http://www.gvsig.com/festival] is now open, a virtual conference about free geomatics with more than 25 presentations in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Turkish and Russian.
At this first edition there will be presentations about the different gvSIG products (Desktop, Online, Roads...) and how they can be applied in different themes like mental health, civil protection, cooperation, historic studies, roads management, acoustic analysis, hydrology, tourism, urban analysis...
The webinar platform allows to connect to the webinars from any operating system, and in case you can't see some of the webinars, you will be able to watch them at the [gvSIG Youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/gvsig/videos] later.
Registration for each webinar can be done from the [gvSIG Festival website http://www.gvsig.com/en/web/guest/events/gvsig-festival/1st-gvsig-festival/program].
See you at the gvSIG Festival!
During the OSGeo board meeting , new local chapter for the Czech Republic was recognized .
The local chapter - OSGeo.cz (Association for Open GeoInfrastructure) - is non-governmental public association, registered by Czech authorities as legal body since 2014.
Our scope is to promote usage of Open Source software and Open data in the geospatial domain in the Czech republic.

From May 23rd to 27th there’s an event that you can’t miss: the first gvSIG Festival. In this case it doesn’t matter where you live or even what language you speak since you will be able to attend (virtually) more than twenty webinars in different languages.
An idea that we were thinking about during the last months was to show varied experiences and in different languages, removing the limitations of the events in an only place. And this take us to this first gvSIG Festival.
At this first edition, some colleagues of the gvSIG Community will tell us about some experiences related to the gvSIG technology (gvSIG Desktop, Online, Roads…). At the next edition we will open a period for sending proposals to convert it in a more global and open event.
There will be presentations in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Turkish and Russian, and we will count with speakers and works developed in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Spain, United States of America, France, India, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Paraguay, Russia, Somaliland, Turkey y Uruguay.
They will speak about how the gvSIG technology can be applied in different themes like mental health, civil protection, cooperation, historic studies, roads management, acoustic analysis, hydrology, tourism, urban analysis…, in conclusion about how gvSIG can help to meet the needs of the society and improve the life of the inhabitants of the Earth.
The webinar platform allows to connect to the webinars from any operating system.
You can consult the complete program in: http://www.gvsig.com/festival, and the information about how to register at the webinars will be available soon.
In case you can't see some of the webinars, they will be published at the gvSIG Youtube channel soon.
See you at the gvSIG Festival!
