OSGeo UK Local Chapter

FOSS4G:UK 2024: Call for Venues and Volunteers

Unfortunately we have not had enough volunteers come forward to run an event in 2024. As discussed at the meeting, we will not be having a national event (local or single venue) this year. Looking forward, we will plan to have an event in 2025.

Further suggestions of venues and volunteers are always welcome - please email this list with them.

We are very happy to support individual events, so if you wish to organise one of these, please do. We are willing to help out where we can - please reach out and let us know if you would like some help.

After two successful FOSS4G:UK Local events in 2022 and 2023, and FOSS4G:UK Online in 2020, it’s time for us all to get together again in 2024 - for the first time since 2019 in Edinburgh.

OSGeo:UK are calling for volunteers to help organise an event later this year, and for suggestions or offers of venues. We’ll need at least 6-8 people to organise everything (we already have a couple from the committee) - a few who are based in the venue location, but most can be remote. It will take a bit of time but anyone who has done it in the past will also tell you that it’s fun, rewarding and sociable in equal parts.

Some parameters/criteria for the event and venue:

If you think you can help in any way on any front, or just have ideas or comments, please fill in this quick form now: https://forms.gle/782n58jc3cjdZfSA6. We’ll be reviewing the responses on (or soon after) 31st March and we will make a decision on whether we can go ahead. Look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you in November!
