The first two editions of the Academic Track, at State of the Map 2018 in Milan and State of the Map 2019 in Heidelberg, have proven that this track is a wonderful chance to connect the OpenStreetMap community with the academic community and to provide a platform to exchange ideas and opportunities for increased collaboration.
