Welcome to the Third Irish OSGeo Symposium 2019 (OSGeoIE 2019)
The Irish Local Chapter of OSGeo are delighted to announce the hosting of the 3rd National Symposium at the Metropole Hotel in Cork City, Ireland on Thursday, 11th April 2019. We, the organisers, welcome all delegates to our third meeting as an OSGeo community in Ireland. Following on from our inaugural event in Limerick in 2017 and in Portlaoise in May 2018 the symposium moves to Cork city.
The event is open to anyone. However it will be particular interest to individuals or groups such as: those with an interest in FOSS4G, users of open source software and FOSS4G, geographers and geoscientists, computer scientists, software developers and programmers, software companies, open data users, data scientists, researchers, government agencies, SMEs, NGOs, students, citizens, etc.
The symposium will provide a relaxed and stimulating environment to learn about OSGeo, meet people with similar interest in OSGeo and FOSS4G, and learn new skills in the workshops. There are lots of people using OSGeo software and tools in Ireland and this symposium will allow them to meet and re-connect as a community.
More details to follow soon.
