State of the Map 2019 is taking place from 21 to 23 September 2019 in Heidelberg, Germany. We have created an exciting program with you—the OpenStreetMap community. For the duration of the conference, we have rooms set aside for breakout sessions that can be booked by groups of mutual interest, or used without prior planning.

If you want to use an app to get reminder for talks in the schedule, you can use Giggity. Alternatively, you can get the whole schedule as calendar file.

The programme of the academic track can be found on a separate page.
