FOSS4G 2013 Conference
September 17, 2013 - September 21, 2013
FOSS4G is the global conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial, hosted by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) and organised by a Local Organising Committee. FOSS4G will be held in the United Kingdom for the first time in 2013, at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham, September 17-21. FOSS4G 2013 will follow on from the Association for Geospatial Information (www.agi.org.uk) annual GeoCommunity event held in the same venue. These two conferences form a part of the geospatial focused events happening across the UK in September (www.maptember.org).
The program is available here. It covers nine continuous streams and 200 presentations. Also, the Local Organising Committee have secured facilities to run additional workshops in parallel with the main conference. These additional workshops will be run in a stream alongside the presentations and will be included in the conference fee.
