On June 14th to 16th this year, OSGeo:UK will be bringing together open source GIS users (current and potential), developers and supporters from the UK and beyond for FOSS4G UK 2016: two days of conferencing plus a day’s hackathon at the Ordnance Survey offices in Southampton. There will be workshops, presentations, un-conference sessions, code sprints, and plenty of socialising too.

The Timetable is now available! Check it out for registration times and room sizes

We’re sold out of day 1 and day 2 tickets, but have limited party, codesprint and hack tickets left. Check here for further instructions!


In other words like this (FOSS4G 2013, Nottingham) only perhaps a bit smaller. FOSS4G 2013


Tuesday 14th to Thursday 16th June 2016.

Registration is open from 8.30AM every day, and the conference kicks off at 9.30. Be early to sign up for workshops!


The conference will be at the Ordnance Survey’s Explorer House Business Centre in Southampton, described as “…one of the most sustainable buildings of its kind in Britain…its modern, comfortable and stylish surroundings are equipped with all the latest technology, with easy access to all areas, an induction loop system and adaptable facilities…”.

Accommodation and Party

Accommodation is self-booked, see the accommodation page for some ideas.

Our party on the night of the 14th June will be at the Dancing Man Brewery. See the party page for details.


We want to keep the cost of entry to FOSS4GUK as low as possible - sponsorship will help us to do that. If you are interested in sponsoring FOSS4GUK, there are opportunities for the smallest to the largest companies, and even for one man bands. To find out about sponsorship, send Steven a message via http://knowwhereconsulting.co.uk/contact/.


Thanks to the generosity of the AGI and our other sponsors we have some free places available for students. If you would like to attend FOSS4GUK mail the team at osgeouk@gmail.com with the subject ‘Student Bursary’ telling them:

Confirm that you can meet your own travel and accommodation costs - FOSS4GUK will pay the delegate fee, lunches and attendance at the party on Tuesday night

Participants at FOSS4G UK 2016 are expected to act respectfully toward others in accordance with the OSGeo Code of Conduct.
