Call for Papers

Have a great story tell about how you use PostGIS? We are looking for papers in a variety of use cases to represent the breadth and sophistication of PostGIS. Talk slots are 30 minutes long and talks generally last 20-25 minutes with time for transition and questions. Talks are generally given live but can be pre-recorded. Talk slots can be timed based on your timezone. Presenters should expect to answer questions live and via chat following their presentation. Talks are recorded and posted our our YouTube channel following the presentations. Speakers can opt out of video posting.

What is PostGIS Day?

PostGIS Day is part of Geography Awareness Week and serves to highlight the features and uses of the PostGIS spatial database as a part of the GIS ecosystem. PostGIS Day is observed the day after GIS Day, for obvious reasons 😆.

Spatial data is everywhere these days, and PostGIS is frequently used to manage that data. Logistics, precision agriculture, insurance, risk analysis and many more industries can or are working with spatial data.

PostGIS Day is a chance to learn how others are making use of PostGIS, pick up some tips and tricks, and share our stories about bringing this excellent tool into your organizations.

How does PostGIS Day work?

PostGIS Day is an online event using the Zoom webinar platform. The day runs from afternoon in Europe until late in the day Pacific time to accommodate a global audience. Attendees are able to drop in and out as needed. A chat for all attendees and panelists is open as well as features for Q&A. Talks are recorded and posted to our YouTube channel for viewing later as well.
