Mbote les Mappers et bonana 2018 !

Pour info, si vous ne le saviez pas encore, le "State of the Map", aussi
appelé SotM, est le nom donné aux rencontres généralement annuelles des
contributeurs OSM.
Certaines ont lieu au niveau national, parfois continental et également au
niveau mondial.

Donc, le comité d'organisation du SotM 2018 mondial vient d'ouvrir son
traditionnel appel à candidature pour les intéressés qui souhaiteraient
solliciter un support financier pour participer à la conférence.
Cette année, la conférence se tiendra à Milan, en Italie à la fin du mois
de juillet.
Compte tenu de l'aspect international de l'événement et de sa tenue dans un
pays non francophone, il serait fortement souhaitable d'avoir des bases
solides en anglais pour y participer de manière constructive.
Vous trouverez plus de détails dans le message ci-dessous.

La deadline pour les candidatures est fixée au 14 février. Les candidatures
peuvent être soumises en anglais ou en italien.
Si vous avez des questions ou besoin d'un coup de main, n'hésitez pas à me

Happy mapping,
