In 2024 the conference wil take place at the Campus der TUHH in Hamburg-Harburg.
FOSSGIS Konferenz addresses local users and businesses to meet, learn about new development & collaborate on local chapter activities in their own language.
During 4 days of conference you can visit many talks, workshops, BoFs and user meetings. There is always an OSM Day. This days is an OSM barcamp for mappers and people interested. This year the OSM day is on sunday before the conference.
FOSSGIS conference offers many workshops. Most of the workshops are using OSGeoLive.
We are lucky that we work together with @c3voc. So we can offer livestream of the talks and put videos online right after the conference.
There are always many activities around OSM with talks, workshops, barcamp, OSM Sunday and the annual OSM Quiz which will identify the OSM king or queen with the the best knowledge of OSM.
FOSSGIS conferences have developed from the initiative of several small companies and communities who merged forces to be able to manage a larger event. OSGeo has been present with a booth and as honorary host since its conception.
The FOSSGIS conference is hosted by FOSSGIS e.V., the D-A-CH (german speaking) Local Chapter of OSGeo.
