안녕하세요?


얼마 전에 말씀 드린 바와 같이 아시아권의 오픈소스GIS축제인 FOSS4G-Asia[1] 행사가 오는 12월 2일부터 5일까지 태국 방콕에서 개최됩니다. 그리고 이 행사를 우리 지부가 실버 스폰서로 후원을 합니다. 


이에 FOSS4G-Asia 행사에 한 분의 회원을 선발해 파견하고자 합니다. 


파견 조건은 가서 발표를 하는 조건이며, 지원 내용은 왕복 항공료(저가항공사 권장, 이코노미석)만 지원입니다. 


이미 우리 지부가 FOSS4G-Asia 행사를 후원했기에 등록비는 없습니다. 따라서, 방콕 행사에 발표자로 선정이 되시면 숙박비 정도만 자비로 부담하시면 됩니다. 


발표자가 되기 위해서는 9월 22일까지 초록을 FOSS4G-Asia 사이트를 통해 제출하셔야 합니다. 발표 내용은 오픈 소스 GIS와 관련된 내용이면 됩니다. 


발표자로 선정된 후에 OSGeo 한국어 지부 메일링 리스트(https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/osgeo-kr)를 통해 후원 요청을 해 주시기 바랍니다. 


궁금한 점 있으시면 또 문의해 주시구요. 


감사합니다.

OSGeo Charter Member Elections 2014

 
News Date: 
18 Jul 2014
Details: 

As in every year, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation will have an election process to allow anyone in the community to become active in the growth of the foundation, by becoming a Charter Member; new people bring new energy, points of view, and diversity. Do you know somebody who is involved with Open Source geospatial software, education or geospatial open data and could contribute toOSGeo's mission and goals? Anybody can nominate anybody, there is no requirement for a prior formal involvement with OSGeo. Please consider making a nomination for Charter Membership. Find out more about positive attributes expected from new Charter Members.

OSGeo Charter Members maintain the integrity of the Foundation. They "own" the Foundation, they elect new Charter Members and the Board of Directors. OSGeo uses the term "Charter" Member to explicitly indicate that these members are responsible for upholding the "Charter" of the Foundation. We emphasize that the only real difference between any regular member and a Charter Member is the responsibility to vote at the Foundation level. It is not our intent to make the Charter Members some "privileged" class. All mailing lists, projects, committees, and other Foundation activities are uniformly open and available to all friends of the Foundation.

Charter Members are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors which is responsible for regular day to day operations of the Foundation. Part of the Board of Directors is renewed each year. Nominations and election of new board members take place in August. Read more about the Foundation Membership.

The 2014 Charter Member nomination period runs for two weeks starting from 2014-07-19 and ending on 2014-08-01. Find all details here.

Hi all, 


Just like the announcement below, international FOSS4G 2015 will take place in Seoul, South Korea. 


Venue : COEX[0], Seoul, South Korea

Date : 14th ~ 19th, Sep, 2015. 


As chair of the LOC, I feel honored and excited about organizing international FOSS4G 2015 in Seoul for the first time in Asia. 


There are lots of reasons you should come to Seoul next year but not limited to below.


First, you can meet differences. FOSS4G 2015 will be the first time event outside of Roman alphabet world. You may meet different language, culture, character and foods. These differences will inspire your imagination and creativity. Cultural diversities in OSGeo will eventually enrich the OSGeo structure and pipe the new fresh energy to OSGeo. 


Second, you can see many business opportunities there in Asia. Asia will be the next big market to open source GIS professionals, users, and companies. For example, Korean government has just started new open source GIS R&D project with a budget of USD 9.6M. The market size of Asian economies already exceeded that of E.U. and U.S.A. and we’ve watched many emerging and vibrant FOSS4G activities in Asia. However this market is still untapped in terms of open source GIS. For this, we have a plan to organize ‘FOSS4G Asia Special Session'


Third, you can expect one-shot-two-kill by attending FOSS4G 2015 Seoul. FOSS4G 2015 Seoul will be held in conjunction with Smart Geo Expo[1] at the same venue. Smart Geo Expo will take place from 21st to 23rd, Sep just after FOSS4G 2015 Seoul. Smart Geo Expo is one of the largest international geospatial event in Asia. Last year, more than 80 companies & institutions including Samsung Electronics, Google, Sokkia, Trimble, Topcon, ESRI Korea, Leica exhibited their products there in Smart Geo Expo. And more than 10,000 people visited exhibition booth and attended several seminars & conferences. International High-level(usually minister level) meeting is usually there. The awesome thing is that Smart Geo Expo is total FREE!


For the success of FOSS4G 2015 Seoul, we definitely need your help & support. I would like to ask something to you. 


At first, please share this info with others around you and create buzz!! 


Second, if you have any awesome idea to make FOSS4G 2015 Seoul an awesome one, don’t hesitate to contact me or the LOC. We created a dedicated list for the FOSS4G 2015 - foss4g2015@lists.osgeo.org and you can join this list through here [2].


Lastly please save and earmark some money for FOSS4G 2015 Seoul. 


You will never get disappointed. Let's escape from the accustomed!!


Hope to see all of you in Seoul next year.


Cheers, 


Sanghee


P.S.) I saw the news a few days ago that Gangnam Style got more than 2 billion views at YouTube. Do you know the venue of FOSS4G 2015 Seoul is located at the heart of Gangnam District, the hometown of Gangnam Style? Who knows you can come across Psy around venue next year? Ha.

Toward Diversity! FOSS4G Bigbang in Seoul!!

Seoul (South Korea) selected to host the 2015 international conference for "Free & Open Source Software for Geospatial" (FOSS4G).


OSGeo Korean Chapter http://www.osgeo.kr


Contact: Sanghee Shin - shshin at gaia3d.com


The OSGeo Korean Chapter is pleased to announce that we have been selected to host the 2015 FOSS4G international conference. The conference will be hosted in Seoul in September 2015, and is expected to attract the leading developers, users and business people in the open source geospatial community from Asia and all over the world.


Holding the FOSS4G conference, the biggest open source GIS event in the world, for the first time in the Asia will bring countless benefits to the region and provide geospatial communities, local businesses, and wider society with a great opportunity to learn about the potential of open source geospatial technologies.


Sanghee Shin, CEO at Gaia3D and Representative of OSGeo Korean Chapter explained his motivations for leading Seoul's bid to make Seoul the starting point of a FOSS4G big bang extending the FOSS4G throughout the region via this conference. He said, "When I tried to introduce Open Source GIS to South Korea in 2008, no one was willing to listen to my opinions. However five years later, the Korean government has recently launched a bid for an Open Source GIS R&D project with a budget of USD
9.5m. This means that that Open Source GIS is set to become a key part of the GIS landscape in South Korea. I¹m absolutely sure that FOSS4G 2015 will ignite and strengthen this trend."


The OSGeo Korean chapter has organised a FOSS4G Korea event each year since 2011 with attendance growing year on year. FOSS4G Korea events run alongside Smart Geo Expo, the biggest geospatial event in South Korea attracting many people from Government, universities, institutes and industry; these delegates also had the opportunity to attend the FOSS4G Korea conference.


In support of a successful FOSS4G 2015 conference, KSIS (Korea Spatial Information Society), the academic society with members of geospatial professional, researchers, students, and policy makers regarding geospatial field, will closely cooperate with OSGeo Korean Chapter. Additionally, KAOS-G (Korean Alliance OpenSource for Geospatial), an alliance of open source GIS companies in South Korea has committed to actively helping OSGeo and KSIS deliver the FOSS4G 2015 event.


The Local Organising Committee (LOC) for FOSS4G 2015 looks forward to the FOSS4G Seoul 2015 conference increasing awareness and usage of Open Source GIS in South Korea, throughout Asia and of course to the rest of the world where it is already being used.

In 2014 the conference will be hosted in Portland, USA, the 2013 conference was held in Nottingham, United Kingdom and was a huge success. FOSS4G Seoul 2015 will be the eleventh "formal" gathering of the Open Source geospatial community. 2015 will be a key year for South Korea and Asia, and FOSS4G will be the best place to see the Free and Open Source (FOSS) way to make an SDI work.

안녕하세요?


오픈 소스 GIS 분야의 세계 최대 축제인 FOSS4G(Free Open Source SW for Geospatial) 컨퍼런스가 내년 9월에아시아 최초로 서울에서 개최됩니다. 지난 2월부터 한 3개월 간의 유치활동이 이렇게 좋은 결실을 맺게 되어 참으로 기쁩니다.


FOSS4G 2015을 한국에 유치하기 위해 많은 활동과 지원을 아끼지 않으신 OSGeo 한국어 지부, 한국공간정보학회, 한국오픈소스GIS포럼, 국토교통부 국토정보정책관실 관계자분들께 진심으로 감사 인사 드립니다. 특히, 개인적으로는 측량협회 허민 박사님과 공간정보학회 최윤수 회장님의 노고에 깊은 감사 드립니다.


유치 성공은 FOSS4G 2015 Seoul의 성공적인 개최를 위한 작은 한 걸음을 시작한 것 뿐이라고 봅니다. 어떻게 알찬 프로그램과 내용으로 전 세계 오픈 소스 GIS 전문가를 맞을 것이며, 또 어떻게 선진국 위주의 행사가 아닌 전 세계 다양한 국가에서 참가를 하는 명실상부한 국제적인 행사로 만들 것인지, 행사의 재정적인 안정성을 어떻게 마련할 것인지 등 이제부터 고민하고 실천해야 할 일들이 더 많은 것 같습니다.


그럼에도 저는 FOSS4G 2015 Seoul 행사의 성공적인 개최를 믿어 의심치 않습니다. 지금껏 많은 도움을 주신 국내외 많은 분들과 즐거운 마음으로 함께 준비를 한다면 당연히 성공적인 대회가 될 것이라고 믿습니다.


저는 내년 FOSS4G 행사가 준비 과정이나 개최 과정이나 참여한 모든 사람에게 '재미'와 '의미'를 주는 행사가 되었으면 합니다. 일보다는 사람이 언제나 더 소중하니까요.


지금까지 유치 활동에 많은 도움과 지원을 아끼지 않으신 분들께 다시 한 번 깊은 감사 인사 드리며, 앞으로 개최 준비 활동에도 많은 분들의 지원 부탁 드립니다.


감사합니다.


모든 FOSS4G 2015 Seoul 조직 위원을 대신하여,

올해는 공정성을 기하기 위해 과거와 달리 발표자의 이름이나 소속이 제거된 채 순수하게 내용만이 공지되어 있습니다. 이에 따라 한국에서 올해 몇 편이나 초록을 제출했는지는 잘 파악이 안되네요.


제출된 초록 192편을 잘 살펴보시고 마음에 드시는 발표자료에 투표하시면 됩니다. (0,1,2 중 하나에 투표)
