*Call for Lightning Talks*

*Workshop of Open Source Geospatial Technologies*

*At AutoCarto 2016, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA*

14 September 2016

The ICA Commission on Open Source Geospatial Technologies is holding a
one-day workshop on “*Advancing GIScience with Open Source Technologies*.”
AutoCarto 2016 will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, 14 – 16
September 2016 (http://tinyurl.com/p7bpfhp).

This workshop at AutoCarto 2016 is a follow-on to the successful AutoCarto
2012 workshop on "The Internet and Geospatial Technologies,” (Columbus,
Ohio).  AutoCarto is a Cartography and Geographic Information Society
(CaGIS) research symposium held every two years. CaGIS is the US adhering
body to the International Cartographic Association (ICA).

In the morning, invited speakers will give presentations on the workshop
topic. In the afternoon, we will have a series of *lightning talks*. These
talks will quickly and broadly introduce recent trends and identify future
research possibilities in the rapidly expanding domain of open source
technologies in the GIScience domain. Further, these talks will identify
existing and new researchers and practitioners in the field and open up new
collaboration opportunities. Ultimately, these talks and the workshop, as a
whole, will provide attendees (and their research or development teams)
with a platform for discussing the dramatically changing open source

Please *provide* a proposed talk title (and, if you would like, an
expanding sentence or two) and your contact information to:
