The 16th annual congress of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo), the non-profit organisation that supports and promotes the collaborative development of free and open source geographic technologies and open geospatial data, will be held in Florence, Italy, at the Palazzo dei Congressi, Palazzo degli Affari and the University of Florence from 22 to 27 August 2022. This is an international congress with nearly one thousand participants and is taking place for the first time in Italy.
The FOSS4G annual conference will address very particular issues that the Italian GFOSS.it community has been pursuing since before 2000, but only next year the international congress will make its debut in Italy, in Florence, thanks to the valuable teamwork carried out by GFOSS.it association, the Italian chapter of OSGeo, the Firenze Convention Bureau, Firenze Fiera, AIM Group International, and the Department of Engineering of the University of Florence. The format of the congress (fully in-person, hybrid or online) will be decided according to the evolution of the global health emergency and the restrictive measures dictated by the Authorities at that time.
