Just in case some of you are not aware of this, the past Open Source
Geospatial conferences in North America (which include the MapServer
Users conference) have joined the GRASS user conference to create an
international conference this September in Switzerland. See below for
the announcement, it's going to be a great event.
FOSS4G2006, the international conference addressing geospatial data
technologies developed by or of relevance to the Open Source community,
will be held September 12-15th, 2006 in Lausanne, Switzerland. The
conference will bring together all of the Free and Open Source Software
for Geoinformatics (FOSS4G) communities. The conference incorporates
the OSGIS Conference, Mapserver User Meeting, GRASS Users Conference,
Java oriented FOSS4G and EOGEO Workshops with the intent to be broadly
Lausanne, Switzerland will host the conference, making it the first time
many of these groups will meet in Europe. A committee is working to
design a program with elements that will interest participants from the
novice to the expert. The conference strives to build on the successes
and enthusiasm generated by previous, related meetings.
