State of the Map 2022 will take place from 19 to 21 August 2022 in Florence, Italy. We have created an exciting programme with you—the OpenStreetMap community. For the duration of the conference, we have rooms set aside for breakout sessions that can be booked by groups of mutual interest, or used without prior planning.

  • Friday, 19 August: conference begins with an opening session, followed by a day of presentations and workshops
  • Saturday, 20 August: day 2 of more presentations and workshops
  • Sunday, 21 August: the final day continues with more talks and workshops plus a whole track of academic talks selected by our scientific committee

The programme below is still in a preliminary state: talks might still be shifted around by the programme committee and some remaining talks as well as the details of the academic track will be added soon.

If you want to use an app to get reminders for talks in the schedule, you can use Giggity.
