Organised by CartONG every two years since 2008, the GeOnG forum gathers humanitarian actors and professionals specialised in information management.
The GeOnG is dedicated to addressing issues related to data in the humanitarian & development sectors, including topics related to mapping, GIS, data collection & information management. To this end, the forum is designed to allow participants to debate current and future stakes, introduce relevant and innovative solutions and share experience and best practices.
The GeOnG is the biggest independent forum on the topic in Europe, with an average of 140 participants from 70 organizations in the last two editions. In the last ten years, it has become a major event on issues related to mapping, mobile technology, information management and, more generally, on the use of new technologies in the humanitarian and development sectors.
The 6th edition of the forum will take place from October 29th to October 31th at the Congress Centre Le Manège in Chambéry, France.
