It is with great pleasure and honour that we kindly invite you to Bucharest, Romania to attend the global event of OSGeo, Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial 2019!

Each FOSS4G has its special aura, wisely and kindly crafted by each Local Organising Committee, sharing the local culture and spirit with the greater community. It is a lovely feeling to bring your friends to your home, to show a glimpse of your country, to have a drink and a good talk in your favourite pub. We have made wonderful friends all over the world attending global and regional FOSS4Gs and we are eager to return the pleasure to our friends, as well as to make new ones that will carry on this tradition.

In 2019,, the OSGeo Local Chapter of Romania, won the honour of organising the geospatial event of the year! We know well it will not be an easy journey, but we are well prepared. We have been preparing since FOSS4G for Central Eastern Europe in 2013 and we vow to rise to the challenge.

We understand and cherish the importance of FOSS4G for giving voice to the daring new ideas and developments in perfect harmony with the pillars of what open source for geospatial is, and thus we promise workshops, talks and keynotes that will provoke your mind and give you hope for a better future.

What is FOSS4G? Where does it come from?

FOSS4G stands for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial. It is the flagship event of OSGeo. Since the first get together, in 2006 in Lausanne, Switzerland, it has been the place where you go for the vibe of the Open Source geoCommunity, where you see the latest developments, find out the latest new super library, or hear of that new innovative product or service. It is the place where you meet the people who wrote the books you read in University, who’s blogs and Twitter accounts you follow.

The history of FOSS4G is a wonderful story rooted in the beginning of this millennium, within the GRASS and MapServer communities. The underlying idea was to create an event that would offer all geospatial senior or junior professionals, students, professors the possibility to get together and talk about free and open source software for geospatial storage, processing and visualization In an attempt to answer this quest, it was decided that FOSS4G would find shelter on a different continent each year, so it can come close to all.
