Organized by CartONG every two years since 2008, the GeOnG conference gathers humanitarian and development actors and professionals specialized in information management.
It is dedicated to addressing issues related to mapping, GIS, mobile data collection & information management in the humanitarian & development sectors. 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 forum is 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 GeOnG is one of the biggest independent forums on the topic in Europe, with an average of 150 to 180 participants from 70 to 90 organizations in the 2014, 2016 and 2018 editions. In 2020, with the move online, the GeOnG forum welcomed more than 370 participants.
After editions tackling the role of these tools in decision-making processes (2008), new data collection technologies (2010), cloud-computing-related challenges (2012), operational data analysis (2014), the impact of humanitarian information management (2016), and the debate around Perfection versus Good enough in Information Management (2018), the 2020 edition focused on: People at the heart of Information Management: promoting responsible and inclusive practices
