December 12-13, 2017 at the USGS National Center in Reston, VA

The OGC Testbed 13 Demonstration Event will take place at the USGS National Center in Reston, VA, USA, on December 12-13, 2017. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about Testbed-13 outcomes and benefits. The morning of the first day will provide a high level presentation summarizing the main achievements of Testbed 13 and providing an summary outlook for Testbed 14. After a catered lunch, a panel session with sponsor representatives will discuss selected testbed results in context of recent developments in the geospatial IT world. Following this session, testbed Participants will present their work. Day 1 will conclude with an invited reception at the Sheraton Reston Hotel.

Event Day 2 will examine technical details of the testbed activities, potential future directions, connections to OGC Standards Program activities, and necessary follow up activities to ensure maximum incorporation of testbed results into the wider geospatial standardization domain. A second panel session before lunch will feature a broader discussion of selected topics.

Because the Demo Event will overlap with the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union a second, abbreviated presentation may also be offered at the ESIP Winter Meeting the week of January 8, 2018 in Bethesda, MD. This event will be considerably shorter, so please consider attending the main event to hear the full Testbed 13 story and take advantage of the opportunity to meet with Participants.
