On June 14th to 16th this year, OSGeo:UK will be bringing together open source GIS users (current and potential), developers and supporters from the UK and beyond for FOSS4G UK 2016: two days of conferencing plus a day’s hackathon at the Ordnance Survey offices in Southampton. There will be workshops, presentations, un-conference sessions, code sprints, and plenty of socialising too.

Submit your proposals by 30th April using this form.


  • Presentations: user stories, applications, demonstrations, discussions, case studies
  • Workshops: doing and learning
  • Code sprints: developing
  • Un-conference sessions: self-organised

In other words like this (FOSS4G 2013, Nottingham) only perhaps a bit smaller.


Tuesday 14th to Thursday 16th June 2016.

  • Main Conference: Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th June
  • Hackathon: Thursday 16th June


The conference will be at the Ordnance Survey’s Explorer House Business Centre in Southampton, described as “…one of the most sustainable buildings of its kind in Britain…its modern, comfortable and stylish surroundings are equipped with all the latest technology, with easy access to all areas, an induction loop system and adaptable facilities…”.
