These FOSS4G proceedings resources might be useful starting from FOSS4G Nottingham https://2013.foss4g.org

I am grateful to all colleagues  who worked on this over the years and made possible this wonderful gift for the global community.

Recordings from FOSS4G presentations are also made available thanks to  Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) – German National Library of Science and Technology.




May I also congratulate the new Board and wish them all success. Thanks to GeoForAll chairs Prof. Helena Mitasova (USA) and Dr Victoria Rautenbach (South Africa) for their service.


Please make use of GeoForAll resources for your teaching and research at https://www.osgeo.org/foundation-news/please-share-geoforall-teaching-research-resources-colleagues-students/

Let us all work to make sure Geographic Information Science is Open for our future generations.

Best wishes,

Subject: [OSGeo-Announce] FYI - 27, 424 paper downloads from FOSS4G conference proceedings since 2017

Dear OSGeo colleagues,

Apologies in advance for a longer email and for cross-postings.

As you may recall, in 2017-18, Mohammed Zia, Andy Anderson, and I launched FOSS4G conference proceedings "Scholarworks" website<https://scholarworks.umass.edu/foss4g/>. Over time, thanks largely to the hard work of Mohammed (and also Andy and Franz-Josef Behr), proceedings were posted for:

Volume 18 (2018) - Guimarães, Portugal
Volume 17 (2017) - Boston, USA
Volume 16 (2016) - Bonn, Germany
Volume 15 (2015) - Seoul, South Korea
Volume 14 (2014) - Portland, Oregon, USA
Volume 13 (2013) - Nottingham, UK

Two other conference proceedings, Volume 17, No. 2. (2017) - Marne La Vallée, France and Volume 18, No. 2 (2018) - Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania were (understandably!) published separately on the ISPRS website, but we linked to those proceedings on the above Scholarworks site.

Since launch in 2017, we've had 27,424 paper downloads and over 1000 in just the last month.  The interactive statistics dashboard is here<https://dashboard.bepress.com/?dashboardToken=5e1f616db5f1be4e4bcbbccbHKRhA9j7J3vRwpkYegz02JiakddWna0ZjHzIcGUo>.

If the FOSS4G 2019 or 2020 academic track managers (or continental FOSS4G conference academic track managers) want to host their conference proceedings to this site, please contact me (cschweik at umass.edu<mailto:cschweik at umass.edu>). Our idea was to keep this repository updated over time with FOSS4G conference proceedings.
