OpenStreetMap US

The call for session proposals for State of the Map US 2014 coming to Washington DC April 12 and 13 is open.

The conference program will be filled with sessions from people contributing to 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 in your local community, at your company, school, or government agency? Built new tools with OpenStreetMap 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.

Submit a session proposal

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 February 2nd 2014.

We welcome submissions from everyone interested in OpenStreetMap and open geo data – 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 during the first day of the conference and a sprint day on April 14. Contact us if you have suggestions for either.
