About FOSS4G

Put on by OSGeo, the annual FOSS4G conference is the premiere global gathering for people working with and creating open source geospatial software. It brings together developers, users, decision makers, and observers from a broad spectrum of organizations and fields of operation for six days of workshops, presentations, discussions, and cooperation. From this melting pot of great spatial ideas and industry flow numerous successful geospatial products, standards and protocols.

FOSS4G has been held all over the world and draws attendees from over 40 countries. Nottingham, England hosted the conference in 2013. In 2014, Portland, Oregon, USA will host FOSS4G’s tenth year.
