FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2018.
Through FOSSMeet, we intend to get the attendees, mostly students, get started with the development and usage of free software. You may propose to conduct a lecture, demo, tutorial, workshop, discussion or panel at FOSSMeet. If the contents of your session is the ‘I am feeling lucky’ result of some Google search, there is low probability that it’ll be accepted. Same applies to proposals titled ‘The absolute beginner introduction to X’ and others on a similar line. On the other hand, if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over most students head, this might not be the best platform to deliver that talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement. If our audience wants it, we’ll try our best to accommodate it. Of course, if you find people interested in your proposal, you can always call a BoF. We are all for BoF’s! :)
Take the above with a pinch of salt. They are no s̶t̶r̶i̶c̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶s̶, only guidelines. All your proposals are welcome and we celebrate every single one that we receive! :D Looking forward to see you folks here.
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.
Call for proposals opens: Oct 23, 2017
Proposal submission deadline: Jan 2, 2018
Proposal acceptance: Jan 18, 2018
Presentation upload: Feb 5, 2018

Big Data Analysis on OpenStreetMap
Digital maps have brought in a massive change in our real world interaction. How about making the digital maps work for us to understand what’s beyond our eyes? From assessing infrastructure problems in your locality to computing forest cover worldwide, map data hold the key to all our pressing questions.
The session will give the audience a basic idea of Open geospatial analysis and an ability to think beyond our regular usage of digital maps.
- Introduce OpenStreetMap
- Data availability & extraction
- Talk about the volume of data
- Touch upon data format & vector tiling
- Introduce tile-reduce
- Elaborate tile reduce usage
- Introduce turfjs
- Analysis with turfjs
- Present use cases/live examples
An avid source contributor & a big data enthusiast, I’ve been actively involved in data analysis & research with OpenStreetMap. Recently I presented about my research at State of the Map- Asia, Kathmandu.
Apart from the big data space, I enjoy Tamil Literature & World Cinema!
