The FOSS4G Europe Valmiera LOC is carefully monitoring the developments of COVID-19 in Europe and around the world. We are closely working with our partners, the Valmiera Development Agency and Valmiera Municipality to best adapt the event given the national and the World Health Organization recommendations. Our number one priority is the safety and health of our participants and we will spare no efforts in that direction.
We are more than 120 days away until FOSS4G Europe 2020 will welcome its participants. By nature, we trust and work for the benefit of all and it’s not only regarding open source technology, yet also faith that we will all act accordingly to local health organisation and World Health Organization recommendations to slow and finally, to stop the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, we are proceeding according to the scheduled roadmap of preparing the European FOSS4G 2020. Thus, please consider the open Call for Contribution and send your input, be it a talk, workshops, lightning talk or an academic paper.
In the days to come, we will announce our outstanding keynote speakers. We are honoured that they have accepted our invitation and we can’t wait to hear them share from their experiences and knowledge.
Given the present conditions, we have decided to introduce a special promotion code STAYHEALTHY starting from 16th of March for regular price tickets that will allow participants to buy discounted tickets. Please, also check the FOSS4G Europe 2020 cancelation policy for ticket refunds.
Stay tuned, stay healthy and we hope to see as many of you in Valmiera in July!
