Dear All,

Building upon the momentum of a very successful FOSS4G 2013 in the UK   http://2013.foss4g.org/  , we are pleased to inform that the Nottingham Geospatial Institute, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation’s UK Chapter and the ICA Commission on Open Source Geospatial Technologies are hosting the Fifth Open Source GIS UK Conference on 2nd-3rd September at the University of Nottingham.

This conference series is based in the UK open source GIS community but has an international reach and holistic outlook bringing together speakers and delegates from government, academia, industry, software development, open source communities, geospatial research, and elsewhere. High profile speakers from around the globe will give presentations and hands-on workshops at the conference. Preliminary website at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/osgis/home.aspx    for more info.

The first day (2nd Sep 2014) will be workshops and second day (3rd Sep 2014) will be the main conference. We are also planning to organise  "Building up Open Access, Open Education and Open Data for Open Science" in September (2nd Sep 2014) in parallel to OSGIS 2014 for bringing together colleagues from Open Access , Open Data and Open Education for building synergies and collaboration opportunities with the "Geo for All" initiative.
