Save the dates for FOSS4G North America 2015
It is my pleasure to announce that FOSS4G North America will be held on March 9-12, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, California.
This event will be hosted at the same time and place as EclipseCon North America 2015 and the LocationTech Summit. This event is a great collaboration between Eclipse’s LocationTech, OSGeo, and a gathering of the FOSS4G community.
We’d also like to thank and announce the conference committee who will be involved with planning the event. They are:
- Andrew Ross – Chair (andrew dot ross at eclipse dot org)
- David Bitner
- Eddie Pickle
- Robert Cheetham
- Ragi Burham
David and Eddie are past FOSS4G NA chairs from 2013 and 2012 respectively. Eddie and Robert were also valuable members of the FOSS4G 2014 bid team in D.C.. We expect to add a couple more members to the team in the weeks ahead and assemble a program committee who will select the program.
The conference will feature hands on workshops, presentations, demos, exhibitors, social activities, plenty of opportunity to mingle, and more. More details will be announced soon.
A shout out in thanks to the OSGeo board for the opportunity to present about this event and their support extended during the April 10th OSGeo board meeting.
