The 2024 Contributor meeting will take place in Bratislava, Slovakia. We will be hosted by Faculty of Civil Engineering STU - see location on OSM.

The main days of the contributor meeting will be 11-13 September - three full days.

Prior to the meeting, there is going to be QGIS User Conference, on 9-10 September. For the User Conference you will need to buy a ticket, details about the User Conference are available at https://uc2024.qgis.sk/. During the conference, there will be room available for contributor meeting participants.

What is a Contributor Meeting?

A QGIS Contributor Meeting is a volunteer-driven event where contributors to the QGIS project from around the world get together in a common space. The event is normally three days in duration and we hold one or two such events each year. During these events, contributors to the QGIS project take the opportunity to plan their work, hold face-to-face discussions and present new improvements to the QGIS project that they have been working on. Everybody attending the event donates their time to the project for the days of the event.

As a project that is built primarily through online collaboration, these meetings provide a crucial ingredient to the future development of the QGIS project. The event is planned largely as an ‘unconference’ with minimal structured programme planning. We do this to allow attendees the freedom to meet dynamically with those they encounter at the event. Those sessions that are planned are advertised on the event web page and we try to enable remote participation through video conferencing software. Although our hosts are not funded and donate the working space to us, we show our appreciation by making one of our software release’s splash screens in honour of that host, which is a great way to gain exposure of your institution and country to the hundreds of thousands of users that make use of QGIS.

Code of conduct

When attending our meetings we ask you to please abide by the QGIS diversity statement and Code of Conduct. We also ask attendees to respect local laws, customs and culture and be good ambassadors for the QGIS project.




Attendants need to organize their own accommodation. Bratislava offers a wide variety of hotels at different price points.
