The recordings of presentations for OSGIS 2014 “Building up Open Access, Open Education and Open Data for Open Science” are now available at http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/osgis/home.aspx for the benefit of the wider community.
I would like to invite you to watch Professor Stuart Marsh’s (Nottingham Geospatial Institute) presentation to get an overview of the research in this theme at Nottingham
and also Professor John Wood’s (Secretary General, Association of Commonwealth Universities) keynote presentation on “Research Data revolution and the Open Science phenomenon” to get an overview of future research directions in this theme.
I would like to thank all our colleagues and students at the University of Nottingham for their help and support over the years for building up Open Geospatial Science.
Through the Research Data Alliance (RDA) we are now building Geospatial Data Science as a key research focus for expanding our research for the future and will have this as a key focus for our next meeting (Sep 22nd) . Details and agenda at https://www.rd-alliance.org/geospatial-ig.html
The program of RDA Plenary 4 is at https://www.rd-alliance.org/plenary4-programme.html
I am also pleased to inform that we will be having FOSS4G – Europe 2015 in Como, Italy in July 2015 (Thanks to Professor Maria Brovelli for organising this ) to further accelerate Open Geospatial Science across Europe. Como is also near JRC and it will be also a good opportunity for planning meeting of all our European labs to build future research collaborations. We will inform more details later.
