This year’s FOSSGIS-Conference took place – theoretically in Rapperswil, Switzerland – from 06 to 09 June 2021. Unfortunately, it was not possible to be on site in Switzerland due to the pandemic, so the conference was held online. To say it in advance: This worked out excellently and was a very good experience. More than 600 participants enjoyed three parallel session tracks consisting of lectures, demo sessions and workshop. The company terrestris actively participated with various lightning talks, lectures, workshops and as an exhibitor. The usual professional exchange was held in the “network world” this year. In this virtual world, conference participants were able to meet the exhibitors and exchange ideas via video chat at the virtual stand.
A lot of praise goes to the organisers and technical implementers of this year’s conference!
