We're excited to announce that we're running Open GIS'2015 this
November 21-22 (Sunday, Saturday) in Moscow, Russia (45 days left)
First Open GIS conference happened in 2012 and brought together
diverse crowd of 250 people from 150 organizations. We had about 50
presentations and 12 workshops. This year we expect at least the same
numbers or more. We hope this will be a very positive, diverse and
This conference is grassroots and organized by members of Russian
GIS-Lab and OpenStreetMap communities (think FOSSGIS, but completely
informal). Attendance and workshops are free.
Though this is a national event, English-speaking presenters are very
welcome. We already have few presentations and workshops from
people from abroad (for example from Victor Olaya). We can guarantee
lots of attention and challenging questions. If you're with a
company this might be a major 'undeveloped market' for your products.
Please let me know if you'd like to come. You will most probably will
require a visa, but there is plenty of time to get one. Your
participation is critical for building stronger ties between
technically apt, but isolated user&developer community here and
outside open source geospatial world.
We're also looking for sponsors, primarily to cover travel for
international visitors and may be students.
Hope to see you in Moscow.
