State of the Map Europe 2023

This year’s State of the Map Europe Conference (SotM EU), taking place in Belgium, will bring together the brightest and most active members of the OpenStreetMap mapping and developing community for a detailed exchange of results and ideas that support the continued success of the various initiatives by strengthening the ongoing projects and collaboration.

State of the Map Europe 2023

The State of the Map European organizing committee, in collaboration with the OpenStreetMap Belgium community, is organizing the State of the Map Europe 2023 conference (SotM EU 2023) taking place on November 10th – 12th in Antwerp, Belgium.

State of the Map addresses and builds bridges between OSM mappers and community activists, open-source developers, researchers from universities and academic institutions, designers, cartographers, and GIS professionals from private and public institutions. This conference offers an opportunity for this diverse group of individuals from various disciplines and backgrounds to meet and exchange knowledge, experiences, and plans for developing the use and improvement of OSM. Around 400 attendees are expected to participate in this conference from Europe and from all over the world. The conference will be offered as a hybrid event, allowing additional participants to join via live- stream if they are unable to join in person.


OSMScience 2023

OSMScience 2023 is a meeting focused on the scientific study of OpenStreetMap. Its 6th edition will be part of the State of the Map Europe 2023 conference, where a full day of sessions will be dedicated to scientific research about and with OpenStreetMap. The goal of OSMScience 2023 is to showcase the research and innovation of scientific investigations into OpenStreetMap while at the same time providing a bridge to connect members of the OpenStreetMap community and the scientific community through an open passage to exchange ideas and opportunities for increased collaboration. We expect empirical, methodological, conceptual, or literature-review-based contributions addressing any scientific aspect related to OpenStreetMap, in particular, but not limited to, data collection, integration, and quality analysis in OpenStreetMap; contribution patterns and the human/social dimensions of the project; integration of machine learning and applications in which OpenStreetMap takes a central role.
