State of the Map Asia 2019 features two full days of talks, workshops, an opening and closing keynote. We have two exciting days ahead of us! The program is created by curating proposals from you - the community and through a scoring process by the committee.

The conference will be at Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB), Dhaka. Aside from that, we will have plenty of space set aside for breakout sessions and birds of a feather meet-ups. (Click here to download the program schedule.)
