               Call for Paper

The Open source GIS - GRASS users conference will take place in Trento,
Italy, 11-13 September 2002. 

This conference is the result of the joint effort of many GRASS developers
and users all over the world to foster closer relations and provide
opportunities for greater interactions among the open GIS and GRASS
The aim of the conference is twofold: the exchange of experiences between
Open GIS and GRASS users and developers and the possibility for the
potential users to access first-hand information and GRASS capability
demonstration, especially for users from developing countries.

The conference is organized by the Department of Civil and Environmental
Engineering of the University of Trento with the help of an Organizing
Committee including some of the most prominent GIS/GRASS experts around
the world.

People from all over the world have already expressed their intention
to participate. The conference has received the sponsorship from UNIDO
(United Nation Industrial Development Organization) and Local branch of
ISF (Ingegneria Senza Frontiere - Ingénieurs sans Frontières - Engineers
Without Borders).

Conference location is the city of Trento, Italy.
Trento is a city of art, of history and represents a crossroads for the
contrasting cultures of Italy and northern Europe. Originally a Roman
city, Trento became famous for the Council (1545-1563) which gave rise
to the counter - Reformation. Among the many faces of Trento, one of the
most striking is that of the alpine Renaissance city, which has been
restored to its original splendor by recent restorations. On nearby
Monte Bondone you can comune with nature against the panorama of the
Dolomites, all of which make Trento, capital of the Trentino region,
a symbol of international alpine culture.

The conference will be held for three days with oral sessions, poster
sessions and workshops. The meeting will cover all the aspects of open
source GISs, with special focus on GRASS. 
Authors are encouraged to submit papers covering the following topics
