State of the Map Europe 2023 - invitation

We at OpenStreetMap Belgium are currently working on organizing State of the Map Europe 2023, for the first time in nearly a decade! This event will take place in Antwerp, Belgium from November 10th – 12th, 2023. It will be a hybrid conference, very similar to the internation State of the Map, which isn’t happening this year. Mark your agenda already, and sign up for updates at

Our organizing team is looking for help! We have a small core group from OSMbe, and we are supported by TomTom event organisers for practical aspects. Right now, we’re looking for help mostly for:

  • finding and contacting sponsors
  • program committee: help decide the content of the event

We could also use a little help with these tasks:

  • help with website maintenance
  • set up call for speakers (pretalx)
  • online participation responsible
  • travel grant program (if sponsoring permits)
  • volunteer coordinator

This is a regional State of the Map for Europe, so we’re hoping for some participation from accross the continent.

Interested? Simply send an e-mail to and tell us which tasks might interest you.
