The “State of the Map Europe” comes to Karlsruhe!
Karlsruhe, 5 December 2013
The State of the Map (SotM) is OpenStreetMap's annual conference. It has been held regularly since 2007 at different places around the world. With the State of the Map Europe (SotM-EU) in 2011, a European branch of this biggest OpenstreetMap conference has been established. After the huge success of the first SotM-EU in Vienna, we're proud to invite you to join us on the Weekend of 13th to 15th June 2014 for the second “State of the Map Europe” on the premises of the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences.
In the course of the next few months we'll extend this site step by step. We're planning to open the call for papers in early December. The submitted presentations will be judged by an international programme committee, so that we’ll be able to release the preliminary programme around March. Registration will be possible from early 2014.
The Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences is co-hosting the event and provides the venue. We were able to enlist the support of the cartography department which is part of the faculty named “Fakultät für Informationsmanagement und Medien”.
There's still some time until the call for papers starts, but we're already looking for sponsors. As a sponsor you have the opportinity to place your logo and have your company name mentioned, as well as the permission to distribute promotional materials to conference participants. We're still working on fleshing out the sponsorship packages, but feel free to contact us already if you're interested.
The conference language is English.
