Meet us at the FOSS4G 2013

Dear All,
GeoSolutions is proud to announce its participation as silver sponsor to the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) 2013 conference, being held September 17th – 21st, 2013, at the East Midlands conference center in Nottingham, UK.

Here below you can find the detailed schedule of our workshops and presentations during the conference.


Wednesday, the 18th, 2013
OGC services with GeoServer: from journeyman to master: Trent B16 –  9:30 a.m. to  6 p.m.
This workshop will provide a introduction to OGC services implementation with GeoServer and GeoWebCache, covering the basics and moving forward to more advanced topics.
Thursday, the 19th, 2013
SpatioTemporal data handling with GeoServerSir Clive Granger Building: B29 A – 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
This workshop will provide an introduction with examples for MetOc and Remote Sensing data for WMS and WCS.
Introduction to high availability clusters with GeoServer and GeoWebCacheSir Clive Granger Building: B29 A – 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
This workshop will provide an introduction to setting up high availability clusters for OGC services using GeoServer and GeoWebCache.


Friday, the 20th, 2013
GeoServer , An Introduction For Beginners: Banqueting Suite, 9:00 a.m., Session 20
This presentation will provide an introduction to the GeoServer project and its abilities to publish data with a mix of well-known OGC protocols and other popular protocols and data formats.
GeoServer , on steroids: Banqueting Suite, 9:30 a.m., Session 20
Setting up a GeoServer can sometimes be deceptively simple. However, going from proof-of-concept to production requires a number of steps to be taken in order to optimize the server in terms of availability, performance and scalability. The presentation will show how to get from a basic setup to a battle-ready, rock-solid installation.
Advanced GeoServer Security with GeoFence: Banqueting Suite, 12:00 a.m., Session 29
This presentation will provide an introduction to GeoFence, an open source tool to configure and use complex authorization rules to protect data served by GeoServer OGC services.
Processing Data In GeoServer With WPS And SQL Views: EMCC Room 1, 2:30 p.m., Session 40
The presentation is a brief GeoServer  o GeoServer WPS capabilities, showing how to build processing requests based on existing processes, and how to build new processes leveraging scripting languages. It introduces unique GeoServer integration features, showing how processing can seamlessly integrate directly in the GeoServer data sources and complement existing services.
Advanced Cartographic Map Rendering In GeoServer : EMCC Room 1, 3:00 p.m., Session 40
Various software can style maps and generate a proper SLD document for OGC-compliant WMS. However the styling allowed by the graphical tools is often limited and not adequate for good cartographic output. This presentation will provide hints, examples and enough information to master SLD in order to create beautiful maps with GeoServer.
GeoServer for Spatio-temporal Data Handling With Examples For MetOc And Remote Sensing:  Sir Clive Granger Building: A39, 2:30 p.m., Session 43
This presentation will provide detailed information on how to ingest and configure spatio-temporal data in GeoServer, to be served using OGC services, with examples from WMS and WCS services.

Saturday, the 21th, 2013
WCS And EO-WCS Status In Open Source:  Baqueting Suite: A39, 11:30 p.m., Session 56
This presentation will show the current status of open source implementations of WCS, and particularly EO-WCS, by comparing GeoServer and MapServer/EOxServer.
Raster Data In GeoServer And GeoTools: Achievements, Issues And Future Developments:  EMCC Room 1, 12:30 p.m., Session 58
The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the developments during last years in raster data support in GeoTools and GeoServer, and also to introduce and discuss future development directions.
Once you have attended one of our workshops or presentation feel free to meet us at our booth (it is the S3 by the way) for questions, doubts or anything you might be interested into. We will be glad to help you out!

See you in Nottingham!
