This website embeds maps provided by uMap (openstreetmap.[fr/de]), intended as an aid for planning your trip and the orientation around the conference venue.

uMap is an opensource service, allowing the creation of annotated maps based on OpenStreetMap layers. OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a community driven project, aiming to create free map data of the world. It is supported by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, a non-profit organisation registered in England and Wales.
