Call for Presentations (Deadline 1st March 2011)
The workshop is held to improve interoperability of open-source and
proprietary Geo Web Service software components. Therefore it is
important to outline the present state of the art of technical and to
identify scientific issues related to the field of Geo Web Services.
Further goals are the development of testing strategies/procedures and
the support of geospatial research in major EU programs and education.
The full day workshop will be held in context of the 14th AGILE
International Conference on Geographic Information Science in Utrecht,
The Netherlands, on 18th April 2011. As the AGILE/EuroSDR/OGC Persistent
SDI Testbed for Research and Teaching in Europe (PTB,
http://sdi-testbed.eu) is co-organizing the workshop, it will be shown
how different Testbed Collaboration could mutually benefit, how to
develop synergies and how to improve the sustainability of running
demonstrators for further work or research. Future strategies for
testing Geo Web Services will also be developed and discussed.
- Scientific questions in the field of Geo Web Services
- Geo Web Service Software tests
- Different testing methods and testing strategies with a special focus on interoperability, compliance and performance
- Different testbeds and testing activities (including PTB)
- Former activities and demonstrators (including reports from current Phase 2 of the PTB) as well as testbeds related to INSPIRE, GMES etc.
- Concerning technologies for developing testing facilities
The workshop consists of invited talks and presentations selected from
this call as well as of panel discussions about future testing
strategies and testbed development (including discussions about
strategies and testbed advances of the PTB). Please submit a short
abstract of your presentation (max 300 words) before 1st March. Based on
this abstracts the presentations will be selected through the organizing
committee. Presentations will be between 20 and 30 minutes (including
discussions). The deadline for the notification of acceptance is the
15th March 2011.
All presentations and abstracts will be published on the PTB website
