Announcing FOSS4G North America 2015 Program Chair
Next March, we’ll be hosting FOSS4G North America 2015 co-hosted with EclipseCon from March 9th to 12th. This conference is a wonderful collaboration between multiple communities. With participants from Eclipse, OSGeo, LocationTech, IoT, Science, and other communities of open source communities, we anticipate some weird and wonderful cross pollination of ideas. Attendees can attend any talk they wish for no added cost.
One of the biggest contributing factors to the value and success of the conference is the quality of the program. The program committee, led by the program chair, is responsible for selecting which presentations are part of the program at FOSS4G North America.
It is my pleasure to announce that Rob Emanuele has agreed to be program chair for FOSS4G North America 2015. Rob is best known for his work on the GeoTrellis high performance geoprocessing framework. His combination of breadth and depth of technology skills, along with his ability to connect with people will serve the program committee well. Thank you Rob! And I look forward to working with you to make this an outstanding conference in 2015.
