Free/Libre and Open Source Software for Geoinformatics: GIS-GRASS Users Conference
Free/Libre and Open Source Software for Geoinformatics: GIS-GRASS Users Conference






September 12 - 14, 2004


The Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Geoinformatics: GIS - GRASS Users Conference will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, 12-14 September 2004. An extended successor to a long series of GRASS-GIS Users Conferences (last held on September 2002 in Trento, Italy), the series will be in Asia for the first time. The conference joins GRASS developers and users worldwide to foster closer relations, and to share ideas for improving software and applications. (Unlike at closed-source software users meetings, anyone can turn findings of this meeting into new code and improved applications.) The Bangkok conference will cover all aspects of FOSS for Geoinformatics, in addition to GRASS itself. Thus the aim of the conference is twofold: (a) exchange of experiences between GRASS users and developers and (b) provide first-hand information on FOSS capabilities for developing national/local spatial data infrastructures, with emphasis on Asian countries. One unique aspect of the conference will be the INSTALLFEST. Bring your computer (or buy one in Bangkok), install GRASS and other geoinformatics software, and begin to use it, all at the conference!
Venue and Organizers
The conference is being organized by the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand, with support from several other institutions. The Organizing Committee includes prominent experts in FOSS for Geoinformatics.
