Irish OSGeo Symposium 2018

The Irish Local Chapter of OSGeo are delighted to announce the hosting of the Second National Symposium in Portlaoise, Ireland on Friday, 25th May 2018. We, the organisers, welcome all delegates to our second meeting as an OSGeo community in Ireland.

Our second national symposium follows on from our very successful inaugural event in Limerick, Ireland in May 2017.

The event is open to anyone. However it will be particular interest to individuals or groups based in Ireland such as: those with an interest in FOSS4G, users of open source software and FOSS4G, geographers and geoscientists, computer scientists, software developers and programmers, software companies, open data users, researchers, government agencies, SMEs, NGOs, students, citizens, etc.

The symposium will provide a relaxed and stimulating environment to learn about OSGeo, meet people with similar interest in OSGeo and FOSSG, and learn new skills in the workshops. There are lots of people using OSGeo software and tools in Ireland and this symposium will allow them to meet and re-connect as a community.

Dr. Marco Minghini (Twitter) (Geolab page) will deliver the keynote speech at the sympoisum
