Volunteers - sign up now, take a slot or two in the Schedule below...

Venue Info

  • OSGeo will be in the main exhibition hall, in a double sized booth that faces the rear of the hall (where some of the food/beverages will be).
  • The space immediately in front is emtpy and is the same size as the double booth. It will be clearer once I get a diagram together, but it could be used for a lounge or stands, etc. as well.
  • We have booth spaces 16, 17, 18, 19 - with the general idea that 17/18 are not normal booths but mostly open space covering a 16x20 foot area.
  • See room layout here.
  • There will be 4-6 computer workstations set up as a public Internet Cafe. You can help by setting this up before the hall opens, see volunteer schedule below.
