Have Your Say, the FOSS4G Way

The fact that the submission of abstracts for FOSS4G 2009 closed over a week ago without my noticing betrays that I've been under the pump lately, but I've finally had the chance to hit the voting site and have a look at the results. The line-up is more impressive than I'd hoped. With much of the knowledge and experience of our industry distilled into bite-size chunks, it's hard to know where to start. My recommendation: start by letting us know (before Sunday, June 28th) what you want to see or you may be sorely disappointed. Of the 170 or so submissions, my personal highlights reel includes:
  • PostGIS and Oracle Spatial (Greener)

  • Geoprocessing in the Clouds (Schaeffer)

  • Geodata and CouchDB (Mische)

  • Web Mapping Performance Shoot-out (Ramsey)

  • Visualising animal movements in 'near' real time (Madin)
