FunGIS and OSGeo (the Open Source Geospatial Foundation) are teaming up to bring the FOSS4G Oceania 2020 conference to Cairns. This will be a 1 day hybrid event with exciting speakers from a range of GIS fields presenting in-person at James Cook University's Idea Lab, and videolinked speakers from other FOSS4G events across Oceania.

FOSS4G SotM Oceania is a regional event that brings together the open source geospatial community. We have added to this online content with local speakers and the first Georabble event (we know of) in the Far North.
