This two days conference in Berlin will focus on the role that Open Source Systems plays in future scientific development. The conference programme will concentrate on the progress reached in the the domain of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), geo-portal news and geo-information generation. Particular attention will be paid to the impact these alternative systems will have on privacy and data protection laws.
