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, geo-spatial.org, 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. 

With that in mind, visit our website regularly for new updates on how your event is shaping up!

Foss4g Bucharest Ambassadors

For years at a row, FOSS4G was the place to be at the end of your summer and beginning of your autumn. 2019 brings no change. For any geospatial fan or professional, Bucharest is the place to be in the last week of August of 2019 to connect with the geospatial world.  Yet, our home planet is big and eventful, so the word on FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest must travel far and wide. And how can this message better be delivered if not from the very pillars of our community?  

In our work of sharing the news, we seeked help within the core of our community and invited mentors and friends to become FOSS4G 2019 BUCHAREST Ambassadors! We hope our invitation comes as a sign of our acknowledgment for their long-standing valuable work in the open source for geospatial world. 

FOSS4G 2019 BUCHAREST Ambassadors have received a special kit with foss4gy materials to assist them in spreading the word, so if you see someone anointed with the FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest T-shirt, go meet them. They’re wonderful people and they have an important message for you. 

We are deeply grateful for the work of our Ambassadors to send the FOSS4G2019 Bucharest message across oceans and continents, across generations, across geospatial solutions preferences. Their work is profoundly important for our community. After all, we are here because at a moment in time, we got the courage to go across the conference room and meet such an ambassador.
