We're soliciting proposals for sessions at the third annual 2017 HOT Summit, OpenStreetMap: Impact in Disaster and Development, happening September 14-15 in Ottawa, Canada.
The Summit is not only a chance to showcase projects, but also to debate and discuss new ideas or innovations into the work we do. This year's theme is about impact and we encourage proposals for presentations that provide an overview of mapping projects and the impact they have on the lives of people beyond the mappers.
We're looking for the following types of talks or sessions:
Lightning talks. These are five minute idea pitches to be delivered on the first day. We're looking for talks that showcase new ideas or new innovations that can help improve the lives of people with OpenStreetMap.
Breakout Sessions. These are 15-20 minute talks about projects that focus on: community building, technology, innovation, challenges in data contribution or use, or the impact of HOT and OSM work.
Workshop and training sessions. These are 1-2 hour sessions for training and learning new tools. If you have a new tool that has been developed or have an idea for an advanced training session, submit an idea for a workshop session.
Keep an eye out on how you can propose ideas for working group and other birds of a feather sessions in the weeks leading up to the conference.
