After a successful 2014 edition in Bremen, the FOSS4G Europe conference is announced this year in Como, Italy, on July 14th-17th 2015.
Jointly organized by Politecnico di Milano, OSGeo, ISPRS and ICA, this international event will gather FOSS4G developers and users from Europe and beyond. It aims at fostering closer interactions with and amongst European communities in order to share ideas for improving data, software and applications openness.
FOSS4G Europe 2015 will host six different tracks and a number of happenings including a Mapping Party for celebrating the International Map Year, a GeoForAll meeting, the NASA World Wind Europe Challenge 2015 winners ceremony and other social events. One day of workshops will also precede the conference (14 July 2015) and the traditional OSGeo code sprint will close the event on 18 July 2015.
As part of the organisation committee, GeoLabs is glad to host, design and manage the conference website in close collaboration with the organizers. As for the last year foss4g.fr event, the CMS is powered by Edgewall Trac, ZOO-Project and Bootstrap.
