OpenStreetMap US

We just went live with the call for session proposals for the State of the Map US conference coming to San Francisco June 8 & 9. The entire conference program will be filled with sessions from people using OpenStreetMap – on what they’re building, how they’re doing it, and their vision for the map’s future.

Have you used OpenStreetMap in an interesting project at your company, school, or government agency? Built new tools with OSM data, or incorporated it into your business model? Held trainings or community editing events? Do you want to see it head a particular direction? Then we  want to hear from you .

State of the Map 2013 session proposals

All sessions will be 20 minutes long with an additional 5 minutes for Q&A. To submit a proposal, just  send in your session idea in 200 words or less . The deadline for proposals is  April 26 .

We welcome submissions from  everyone  interested in OpenStreetMap and open geodata – including people of all backgrounds and skill levels, long time contributors, and those new to our community.

We’re looking forward to your ideas!

We will also be hosting hands-on workshops before the conference on June 7 and a hack day on June 10.  Contact us  if you have suggestions for either.
