|Title||NASA Mini-Summit for Open Source Software and Science|
|Abstract|| This session will host a series of Open Source for NASA Science Data Systems talks, focusing on:
* Deployments * Licensing, Attribution and Redistribution issues in Open Source Software * Sharing Software Between Centers: Success Stories * Short Lightning Talks * How NASA open source software can help the ESDIS project * Legal/IP issues in Open Source Software
We will solicit between 4-6 30 min talks from leaders in the NASA Earth Science Data Systems Community and from leaders in the broader open source community from which NASA leverages (e.g., from NetCDF/UCAR, HDF5-group, GDAL, PostGIS, etc.). In addition, we will have 2 focused discussion sections with those in attendance to digest and learn from the talks given. Community feedback will be an important aspect of the workshop, as will sharing "tribal knowledge" from those in the open source community.
We expect strong synergy between the Geospatial Cluster and this workshop, including participation and attendance.
