The StateoftheMap Organising Committee

is responsible for the organization and execution of the annual OpenStreetMap Foundation Conference "The State of the Map". (official site) SotM on the OpenStreetMap wiki

Announcements are usually made on the OSM blog and on Twitter.

Status: Active
State of the Map 2018 will take place from the 28th to the 30th of July 2018 in Milan, Italy!

You can find all the information about the State of the Map 2017 event that took place in Aizu-Wakamatsu (Japan) at and on the OpenStreetMap wiki.

Regional SotMs are organised exclusively by local teams, not by the OpenStreetMap Foundation: Please note that regional SotMs (such as SotM-Asia, SotM-Africa, SotM-LatAm and others) are organised exclusively by local teams, which run their own sponsorship programs and have separate budgets from the OpenStreetMap Foundation. If you want to contact the organisers of a regional SotM, it is preferable to contact them directly.
