For the second time in history, the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC: http://www.opengeospatial.org/) will host a ‘Technical Committee’ meeting in Australia; from 30 November to 4 December 2015, at NICTA in Redfern, Sydney.
To celebrate this event, GeoRabble is joining forces with the OGC, to bring you a special ‘OGC-o-Rabble’ session on Monday 30 November, from 5:30 PM at the Swanson Hotel.
As always GeoRabble will be free for everyone including OGC attendees, GeoRabblers and anyone else interested in spatial technology.
This will be a unique opportunity for the international OGC community and the Sydney geo-community to get to know each other, mingle and network over drinks, free pizza (thanks to Jacobs‘ generous sponsoring) at an iconic Aussie venue.
We want to hear your stories of international and Australian uses of spatial technology, so we are calling for speakers who can hold a short (up to 10 minute) talk about their international geo-experience, or about something typically Australian that would enlighten our foreign visitors (Croc-tracking anyone?)
Do you have an idea for a talk? Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, by popular request, we’re bringing back our Geo-Trivia.
Watch this space for venue details, and don’t forget to register. It is always a free event, but we need to know numbers for catering purposes.
