Melbourne Open GIS is a forum to discuss open technology, standards and interoperability in GIS. Our meetings bring together professionals from geospatial and other disciplines in a casual environment for some presentations, informal discussions, socialising and some drinks supplied by our meeting sponsors.
We are seeking sponsors for our event. As well as our invited speakers, other organisations or individuals who bring a slab will have 5 minutes to present on a topic of their choice. (Blatant advertising will result in being sent to the bottle shop to purchase another slab.) Half-slab sponsorships are available to government and non-commercial presenters. Contact the group's organisers to register your interest.
