The Open Geospatial Consortium leads the Geospatial Track at ApacheCon North America 2019
"We are delighted to collaborate once again with the Open Geospatial Consortium on the Geospatial Track at ApacheCon," said Rich Bowen, ASF Vice President Conferences and Event Chair for ApacheCon North America. "OGC's involvement reflects both the interest and participation in a growing number of Apache projects. We are happy to make ApacheCon the home for meaningful, community-curated content for the greater geospatial community."
Multiple Apache projects include geospatial information and processing. The Geospatial Track will consider a range of geospatial implementations ranging from location as an attribute, to projects that perform spatial analytics, including handling of coordinate reference systems (CRSs), geometries, and arrays. Emphasis is invited on the use of open standards, including OGC's recently updated CRS Well Known Text, version 2. The Geospatial Track will foster discussions that will reduce development effort through the reuse and increased quality of geospatial information handling.
Discussions about this track are invited on email@example.com.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 525 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that 'geo-enable' the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful within any application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Visit the OGC Website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/
ApacheCon is the official global conference series of The Apache Software Foundation. Since 1998, ApacheCon has been drawing participants at all levels to explore "Tomorrow's Technology Today" across 300+ Apache projects and their diverse communities. ApacheCon showcases the latest developments in ubiquitous Apache projects and emerging innovations through hands-on sessions, keynotes, real-world case studies, trainings, hackathons, community events, and more. ApacheCon attendees will also be joining The Apache Software Foundation in celebrating its 20th Anniversary at both its North America and Europe events.

The Apache® Software Foundation Announces Call for Presentations and Registration Open for ApacheCon, its Official Global Conference Series
Attendees to Experience "Tomorrow's Technology Today" and Celebrate Two Decades of Open Source Innovation "The Apache Way" in Chicago, Las Vegas, and Berlin
Wakefield, MA —3 April 2019— The Apache® Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that its call for presentations (CFPs) and registration are open for ApacheCon™, the ASF's official global conference series.
ApacheCon draws attendees from more than 60 countries to experience "Tomorrow's Technology Today" by showcasing key Open Source technologies independent of business interests, corporate biases, or sales pitches. ApacheCon content is selected entirely by Apache projects and their communities, enabling participants at all levels to learn about the latest innovations in dozens of categories that include Big Data, containers, Cloud, DevOps, IoT, servers, and Web frameworks, among others. Participants learn about Open Source development "The Apache Way", through hands-on sessions, keynotes, real-world case studies, trainings, hackathons, BarCamps, and more in a deliberately intimate, collaborative, vendor-neutral environment.
"The first ApacheCon started 21 years ago and quickly rose to prominence for its strong community presence, both in content and spirit," said Rich Bowen, ASF Vice President of Conferences. "Through the years, ApacheCon has featured Apache projects from virtually every technology area in Open Source, presented by hundreds of individuals from the greater Apache community. We are proud to continue to be the primary gathering of the collective Apache community worldwide, and look forward to celebrating the ASF's 20th Anniversary together at ApacheCon."
Attendees will join The Apache Software Foundation to celebrate its 20th Anniversary at the following events:
- Apache Roadshow: 13-14 May 2019 in Chicago, Illinois
- ApacheCon North America: 9-12 September 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada
- ApacheCon Europe: 22-24 October 2019 in Berlin, Germany
Call for Presentations
The Call for Presentations (CFPs) is open for both ApacheCon North America and Europe events. ApacheCon North America will feature over a dozen tracks, including Apache project summits for Cassandra, CloudStack, Tomcat, and Traffic Control, as well as user community-generated content, such as from the Open Geospatial Consortium, which will be organizing a track for the third consecutive year. Content tracks at ApacheCon Berlin will feature Big Data, Community, IoT, Machine Learning, and Open Source Design, among other categories. The Apache Roadshow/Chicago has just closed its CFP and will be featuring AdTech, FinTech, Insurance, "Made in Chicago" Startups, Podling Shark Tank, Community Diversity, and other categories as part of its program.
Registration is open for all three events, with time-limited, early registration incentives and additional discounted rates available for individual participants as well as groups.
ApacheCon sponsors gain visibility and competitive advantage by engaging with the greater Apache community, industry influencers, and potential future collaborators. Many sponsors consider Apache conference events to be invaluable resources for recruiting top Open Source talent. ApacheCon Platinum Sponsors include Google Cloud, DataStax, and Tencent Cloud. Sponsorship opportunities are available for all three events; prospectuses are available for download from each conference Website.
