The 52°North Open Innovation Network invites you to participate in the Geospatial Sensor Webs Conference 2016.

Under the motto “Geospatial Sensor Webs”, the 52°North Open Innovation Network aims to provide a forum in which sensor web researchers and practitioners can present and discuss their ideas, use cases and solutions. The forum will be an opportunity to discuss the state and future directions of Sensor Web standards and technologies based on experiences in a variety of application domains.

The program will offer pre-conference tutorials on Monday, August 29th. The conference will start with a keynote session on Tuesday, August 30th, followed by paper presentations and open sessions on various topics.
