Parking

Parking in Cambridge and Boston can be expensive and hard to find (Marriott Parking is $22 per day for self-park).  Whenever possible, park your car at the hotel, and use public transportation to get to the MIT campus. If you must drive to the campus, on- and off-street parking is available for a fee, but most public parking is not very close to the center of the MIT campus

Public Transportation (the MBTA, known as "the T")

The closest subway station to campus is Kendall Square on the Red Line, you may also want to consider going to Central Square (also on the Red Line) or taking the #1 or CT1 bus across the Charles River from Back Bay, depending on where you are coming from and your destination on campus.

Public transportation fares and schedules may be found at the MBTA website. If you are coming to MIT for an extended visit, you may want to consider buying a stored value CharlieCard or an unlimited use weekly or monthly pass.

Timezone: 
Eastern (EST)
Location: 

Webinar Information: 

Previous OGC GovFuture webinars, produced in cooperation with Directions Magazine, provided an overview of OGC standards for Spatial Data Infrastructures and also looked at the Dutch national program for 3D urban modeling and analysis based on the OGC CityGML Encoding Standard. Our June 12 GovFuture webinar will focus on the many ways in which OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards can help cities and regions improve quality of life for citizens.

This webinar will show how Internet-connected sensors are being used to support municipal and regional operations. Speakers will show how open standards for sensor webs multiply the potential of such sensor networks. The webinar will feature speakers who have been closely involved in multiple projects that take advantage of open standards to help enable officials and citizens to publish, discover, assess, control, access and use sensors as well as live and stored sensor data.

During this webinar, you will learn:

How the EU FP7 project, EO2HEAVEN (Earth Observation and Environmental Modelling for the Mitigation of Health Risks), funded by the European Commission, has combined environmental sensor data with other sources of data, including public health data, to assess environmental risks in Europe and Africa
How open sensor networks can be managed with respect to privacy, liability and security issues
How GovFuture membership in the OGC can help governments derive maximum value from geospatial technologies integrated with sensor webs
Speakers

Kym Watson of the Fraunhofer Institute IOSB (Germany) will give a summary of how OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards have been used in EO2HEAVEN to the benefit of policy makers, local authorities and scientists.  Watson is the coordinator of the FP7 project EO2HEAVEN and has represented EO2HEAVEN in various GEOSS meetings organized by GEO and the European Commission.

Simon Jirka, the 52°North representative to EO2HEAVEN, will talk about the technical details and challenges of sensor webs based on open standards. The 52°North group (Germany) is doing most of the SWE implementations for EO2HEAVEN.

Steven Ramage will introduce the speakers and speak briefly about the OGC, OGC's Sensor Web Enablement initiative, and OGC GovFuture membership.

Who should attend

This webinar is oriented toward local and subnational government entities worldwide that could benefit from interoperability standards for sensor networks and could also benefit from access to OGC GovFuture resources.

Schedule of Meetings: 

Register to attend the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Technical Committee's Smart Grid Ad Hoc Meeting, "The Smart Grid's Geospatial Requirements"! As Mark Reichardt, President and CEO of the OGC, explains in "Space, Time, and the Smart Grid’s Neighboring Worlds ", Smart Grid web services will need to communicate information about location, proximity, political and ownership boundaries, weather-affected regions and more. Those web services will communicate through open standard interfaces and encodings IF THE SMART GRID STANDARDS COMMUNITY MAKES IT SO! If your company or agency is involved in the Smart Grid Standards effort, we encourage you to meet with other members of the Smart Grid standards community to explore the Smart Grid's geospatial issues in a special Smart Grid Ad Hoc meeting in the Olympus Mons (CL4) facility at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California from 1400-1700 on Wednesday afternoon, December 9, 2009. Agenda for the Smart Grid Ad Hoc meeting: 1. Areas of convergence between current Smart Grid standards and OGC standards: Common Information Model and the contexts for geospatial information and processing, Wide Area Situational Awareness, cyber-seurity, requirements for Sensor Webs and other topics that are defined or inferred in Release 1 of the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards . 2. OGC involvement and participation: formation of a Domain Working Group and orchestration of collaborative work by OGC and other SDO's (IEEE, IETF, OASIS, etc). 3. Next Steps and Actions. We invite you to also attend the OGC Technical Committee's Evening Reception and dinner from 1830-2100 at the world famous Computer History Museum in Mountain View.  The OGC holds its Technical Committee Meetings five times per year at locations around the world, and the Evening Receptions are always memorable events! The ad hoc meeting is free but registration is required.  Click here to register.There is a $50 charge to attend the reception and dinner.  Payment will be collected at on-site registration and must be made via Credit Card.If you cannot attend, but wish to participate, there is limited conference call capability: dial in +1 512 225 3050 passcode:36429# Full OGC Technical Committee meeting information can be found here .

Overview:Standards of the Open Geospatial Consortium are becoming more and more established in the geospatial world and hold the key to build Geodata infrastructures based on interoperable components. The European Commission is encouraging the wider adoption of standards e.g. in the context of INSPIRE, the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe directive.

 

Whilst market demand for standards compliant components is steadily growing, many end users are still puzzled as to how the underlying specifications actually evolve, or what the direct benefits are in the context of their day to day business. Moreover there are questions relating to the level of real life adoption on national and European levels.

On Friday the 3rd of April 2008 you have a chance to get first hand answers to such questions at the OGC & HellasGI Greek Interoperability Day, held in Athens, Greece.

The presentation sessions include experts from OGC, governmental organizations, academics and companies.

The presentation sessions during the Interoperability Day are accompanied by selected company and project presentations in the catering and break-out area.

The language of the event will be mainly Greek but some of the presentations will be in English.
