Yep that’s right, FOSS4G, North America is coming to D.C. this April 10-12, 2012 and I’m sure as a result, GeoGeeks all over North America are gonna be a bit giddy over this one! Recall last fall when FOSS4G was held in the Geo hotbed of Denver, Colorado, the event came off as a huge success. The only downer of that event was that the GeoGeek crowd had quickly realized that because of the way FOSS4G flip flops across the Ocean to be held in Europe that it would be a couple of years before the Geo LoveFest hit America again!
Well, to no huge surprise, the organizers (OsGEo) have planned an event to take place in D.C. Some details… The conference will be organized around three tracks: open source technology best practices and tips; deployment case studies; and emerging ideas and trends in open source, and the organizers have published a call for abstracts at http://foss4g-na.org/abstract-submission/ . The event has strong support from the open source community with a growing set of sponsors that includes OpenGeo, Radiant Blue, and AppGeo. Sponsorship is open and space is available, for more information please visit http://foss4g-na.org/sponsorship/.
