March 21 - March 21, 2023
OGC invites location, AI, special interest, and the broader technology communities that foresee potential use of geospatial data in their work to attend our GeoAI Working Group’s Roundtable event. We want to hear from the location community about the exciting GeoAI work you all are doing, where GeoAI’s future is headed, and what data and interoperability challenges need to be addressed along the way.

Become a Speaker
Have you been working with GeoAI applications that could benefit from standardization efforts, or OGC standards that interface with GeoAI ? Or do you have real world experience in the major themes and challenges of the workshop and can provide an interesting perspective for future work?
We’d love to have you share what you’ve been up to with the broader community. Our priority is to hear about real-world implementation from as many different organizations as possible, so don’t feel like you need a ‘new innovation’. And of course it’s a great venue to share tools and spec extensions with others. Apply now to join the line-up of lightning speakers!

All sponsors will have their logos on the event website and in slides thanking sponsors during the event. Sponsors who commit before the general signup launch (tentatively on Feb 20, 2023) will have their logos included on the blog post announcing the signup. Sponsors who commit after that will get their logos included, but will miss out on the initial attention. Sponsors will receive recognition of their support throughout the event and its promotion. We firmly believe that the GeoAI movement is going to be a foundation of much future innovation, so we hope that by associating with GeoAI early your organization will get continued recognition in the future.
