FOSS4G 2018 findet vom 27. August bis 2. September 2018 in Daressalam (Tansania) statt.
We are honoured to formally launch the Call for Papers for FOSS4G 2018 in Dar es Salaam!
Please submit your proposals for papers, workshops, maps, and academic papers here: http://2018.foss4g.org/programme.html 
The Program Committee is looking for a variety of different types of stories across a broad range of sectors and industries. Together we can make this the best FOSS4G yet! We’re looking for all the topics that make FOSS4G great – and especially topics relating to: Urbanisation; Coastal, Marine and the Environment; Widening Access and Humanitarian
Mapping; and Drones.
Listening to the community, we have also extended our early bird discount of $150 until the 15th of May! This means the early bird rate is just $500! We are also offering comprehensive packages as part of the conference, currently these include hotel and the conference ticket – Please register here.
In the coming month, we will also be releasing information on our holiday and tours packages, in partnership with our conference organisers, Studio19. These packages will range from a Safari Adventure to historic and marine experiences in Zanzibar!
WE WELCOME YOU ALL TO DAR ES SALAAM – KARIBUNI SANA!
