FOSS4G (Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial) is accepting proposals for presentations at the 2016 North America regional conference to be held in Raleigh, North Carolina on May 2-5, 2016.
This is an annual gathering for those currently or potentially working with open source geospatial software. The event will bring together a mix of developers, users, decision makers, and observers from a broad spectrum of organizations and fields of operation for one day of workshops and three days of presentations and discussions.
This is a chance for the geospatial open source community to showcase what progress we have made and discover the future.

The “Father of GIS”: Dr. Roger F. Tomlinson (1933–2014) passed away Feb 9, 2014. It was Dr. Roger F. Tomlinson who first coined the term geographic information system (GIS). He created the first computerized geographic information system in the 1960s while working for the Canadian government—a geographic database still used today by municipalities across Canada for land planning. Born in England, he settled in Canada after military service and attending university, where his work in geomorphology led to applying computerized methods for handling map information. Tomlinson has had a distinguished career as a pioneer in GIS and developed Tomlinson Associates Ltd., which provides geographic consulting services. For 12 years, he was chairman of the International Geographical Union GIS Commission. He was also president of the Canadian Association of Geographers and most recently was recipient of the prestigious Alexander Graham Bell Medal, awarded only once before by the National Geographic Society. Tomlinson was also the author of Thinking About GIS: Geographic Information System Planning for Managers, one of the most widely read books on the subject. – See more at: http://blogs.esri.com/esri/esri-insider/2014/02/14/roger-tomlinson-geographer/
