Second Announcement

The Open source GIS - GRASS users conference will take place in Trento, Italy, 11-13 September 2002.

This conference is the result of the joint effort of many GRASS developers and users all over the world to foster closer relations and provide opportunities for greater interactions among the open GIS and GRASS communities.
The aim of the conference is twofold: the exchange of experiences between Open GIS and GRASS users and developers and the possibility for the potential users to access first-hand information and GRASS capability demonstration, especially for users from developing countries.

The conference is organized by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the University of Trento with the help of an Organizing Committee including some of the most prominent GIS/GRASS experts around the world.

People from all over the world have already expressed their intention to participate. The conference has received the sponsorship from UNIDO (United Nation Industrial Development Organization) and Local branch of ISF (Ingegneria Senza Frontiere - Ingénieurs sans Frontières - Engineers Without Borders).

Conference location is the city of Trento, Italy.
Trento is a city of art, of history and represents a crossroads for the contrasting cultures of Italy and northern Europe. Originally a Roman city, Trento became famous for the Council (1545 -1563) which gave rise to the counter - Reformation. Among the many faces of Trento, one of the most striking is that of the alpine Renaissance city, which has been restored to its original splendor by recent restorations. On nearby Monte Bondone you can comune with nature against the panorama of the Dolomites, all of which make Trento, capital of the Trentino region, a symbol of international alpine culture.

The conference will be held for three days with oral sessions, poster sessions, workshop and tutorials. The meeting will cover all the aspects of open source GISs, with special focus on GRASS. Authors are encouraged to submit papers covering the following topics: Papers outside these areas are welcome too, special attention will be paid to papers involving authors or projects from developing countries.
