Building Bridges, Empowering communities

Just one month after the successful FOSS4G UK  conference, our colleagues in Austria have run an excellent  FOSSGIS Conference (4th to 6th July 2016) at the University of Salzburg.

The FOSSGIS Conference 2016 is organized by FOSSGIS e.V (german language local chapter of the OSGeo), the OpenStreetMap Community and the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) in cooperation with the University of Salzburg. I want to thank our colleagues at the GeoforAll lab at Salzburg for their support and contributions.

The FOSSGIS-conference is the largest german-language conference for Free and Open Source Software for GIS and Free Geodata hosting about 400 participants. FOSSGIS offers lots of presentations and workshops concerning FOSSGIS, Open Data, OpenStreetMap and more.

It is just amazing to see the growth  and impact of our global community from Argentina http://www.foss4g-ar.org   to Japan https://sites.google.com/site/foss4ghokkaido/

Thank you to all the kind volunteers  in all  countries and regions for their selfless efforts that help make this possible .All these events are organised for the community, but also by the community. It is this global outlook that is key to our success. On behalf of Geo4All, i invite strong participation from everyone for our Global FOSS4G conference this year at Bonn [1]
