FOSS4G:UK Local 2022 - Keyworth (British Geological Survey)
We are very grateful to the British Geological Survey for supporting FOSS4G:UK Local at this event.
The meeting is on Thursday 17 November 2022.
The event will be held in MR 1+2, beside the canteen. National keynotes will be streamed to watch together and the start and end of the day. There will be local presentations and sessions between 11:00 and 16:00.
There will be Unconference sessions between 14:30 and 16:00. Delegates will suggest topics for discussion on the day and vote on which will run. MR 1 and 2 will be partitioned to allow two streams to run in parallel.
The 3D Visualisation Suite will be available all day for collective viewing of streamed sessions from other venues on the big screen. See the this spreadsheet for schedules of presentations at other sites.
