OSGeo UK Local Chapter

FOSS4G UK Online 2020

Graphic by Rosalid Cuttle

OSGeo:UK are running a one day online FOSS4G event on 17th June 2020. This will give us all a little FOSS4G fix in this strange time, and make a small contribution to the big holes left by the cancellation of IRL FOSS4G events. We’ll share some of the work we’ve been doing since the world changed, and maybe pave the way for more online events in future.

Programme

The schedule for the day is here, and the full session listing of abstracts is here. This is still subject to change, so keep an eye out for updates.

There are three parallel streams of roughly 30 minutes sessions covering seven themes. All sessions will be recorded so you can catch up later if there are clashes between your favourite topics.

Tickets/Registration

Registration is open now, and closes at 24:00 on 16th June (unless we are sold out before then). It’s fine just to come to one or two sessions, but you will still need to register before the day - this allows us to manage numbers.

Register on Eventbrite here.

Cost

The event is free to attend but we strongly encourage attendees (and/or their employers) to make a donation of £20 (more if you can afford or less if you can’t) to one of these causes:

Helping out

We (the OSGeo:UK committee) would appreciate any help you can provide, either before, during, or after the event - please sign up here if you are able to chip in - for example we will need hosts/co-hosts for sessions.
