State of the Map/Planning/Keynote speakers

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The keynote is the main starting talk of the conference (before dividing into tracks), given by someone who would be considered a main person within OSM or a special guest. Should be someone who can boldly make a statement on what the big OSM subjects of the last 12 months are and what is the next big thing for OSM and the OSMF.
