Description

The QGIS US Users Group & partners in North America are proud to announce the QGIS North America 2020 virtual conference to be held on three consecutive Fridays in July:

  • Friday, July 17, 2020
  • Friday, July 24, 2020
  • Friday, July 31, 2020

We offer this meeting as a way to share our ideas and skills when so many in-person meetings cannot safely happen. We recognize that while we are all separated, we have the opportunity to include people in a greater diversity in locations and economic situations since travel and registration costs are not necessary. We invite participation from all over the globe, but presentation times will focus on the North American audience.

The cost to attend will be free, and we would like to suggest attendees make a donation to support QGIS at https://qgis.org/en/site/getinvolved/donations.html

Call for Participation

The organizers of the QGIS North America 2020 virtual conference would like to solicit proposals for participation in this conference to be held online on Friday, July 17th (and potentially Friday, July 24th, with sufficient interest) in the form of talks, workshops, birds-of-a-feather networking sessions, and ideas for other session. Sessions can focus on any aspect of QGIS and we particularly encourage talks about applications of the software, software and plugin development, and discussions of transitioning to using QGIS software from other tools.

UPDATE: The call for session proposals has closed, and the planning group will announce the program by the end of this week (June 26).

Program Schedule

The program schedule will be decided after the call for talk and workshop proposals has closed.
