The program

Our conference will include several kinds of sessions:

  • 75-minute workshops,
  • 20-minute presentations, or
  • 5-minute "lightning" talks.

The call for session proposals deadline has now passed (2nd April), and we received feedback from the community survey (deadline 23rd April).



We will be seeking sponsors of the conference once the venue is selected. Would your company would be interested in supporting OpenStreetMap in this way? Write to for information.

Venue: (Politecnico di Milano)

The Politecnico di Milano is located here on the map (Address: Piazza Leonardo da Vinci, 32, Milano)
