From May 23rd to 27th there’s an event that you can’t miss: the first gvSIG Festival. In this case it doesn’t matter where you live or even what language you speak since you will be able to attend (virtually) more than twenty webinars in different languages.
There is no doubt that gvSIG is increasingly worldwide project: if it has a strong implementation in Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries, it’s currently well-known in more an more countries, in every continent, in every language.
An idea that we were thinking about during the last months was to show varied experiences and in different languages, removing the limitations of the events in an only place. And this take us to this first gvSIG Festival.
From some weeks ago we have a webinar service at the gvSIG Association, so we have decided to organize a first virtual conference.
This time we have decided not to open call for presentations but inviting some colleagues of the gvSIG Community to tell us about some experiences related to the gvSIG technology (gvSIG Desktop, Online, Roads…). For sure at the next edition (we are sure that it will be successful!) we will open a period for sending proposals to convert it in a more global and open event.
We think that the program meets the objective to show the variety of uses and users that take part of the gvSIG Community.
There will be presentations in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Turkish and Russian.
We will count with speakers and works developed in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Spain, United States of America, France, India, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Russia, Somaliland, Turkey y Uruguay.
They will speak about how the gvSIG technology can be applied in different themes like mental health, civil protection, cooperation, historic studies, roads management, acoustic analysis, hydrology, tourism, urban analysis…, in conclusion about how gvSIG can help to meet the needs of the society and improve the life of the inhabitants of the Earth.
Working from a variety of countries, under the same project that is built on the collaboration, solidarity and shared knowledge bases.
