General Track 

Conference committee is opening General Track for students, researchers, developers, users, and practitioners to submit their work in open-source geospatial software in various fields to foster the benefits of open-source geospatial software. The conference will be having 4~6 parallel streams in a range of subjects from diverse fields. Each individual oral presentation will be allowed about 15 minutes and 5 minutes for Q&A. Poster presentation sessions are a valuable opportunity for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. Poster sessions are in a large room lined with over 50 display boards. Poster sessions are scheduled for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
