We would like to welcome Expression of Interest from interested candidates for two Academic Track Chair positions for FOSS4G 2013. The Academic Track Chairs will work for the successful organization of FOSS4G 2013 Academic Track and also help establish a framework for publications for the selected papers from future Academic Tracks in FOSS4G conferences as aimed in the ICA-OSGeo MoU http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/MOU_ICA
We invite those who are interested and with strong research background in Open Source GIS to apply for this. Interested applicants should email Rafael.Moreno@ucdenver.edu before 20 August 2012 with their details and brief statement about their publication ideas and strategies for the FOSS4G Academic Track. The selection panel will consist of Helena Mitasova (North Carolina State University), Serena Coetzee (University of Pretoria), Barry Rowlingson (Lancaster University) and Rafael Moreno (University of Colorado Denver).
The selected academic track chairs should work closely with the FOSS4G Academic members and LOC to ensure time plan and all actions are on track. We look forward for your strong support and participation for this.
