On behalf of OSGeo North America, we’d like to invite you to attend
the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial - North America
(FOSS4G-NA) conference being held from April 10-12, 2012 at the Walter
E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. This event will
serve as a regional follow-up to last September’s highly successful
international FOSS4G 2011 conference in Denver, Colorado, focusing on
the North American open source geospatial community.
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.
The call for abstracts is open now and can be submitted here:
http://foss4g-na.org/abstract-submission/ . We have space for about
50 presentations and 20 Ignite sessions, so get your submissions in!
In addition, Michael Byrne, CIO of the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) will be delivering a keynote address, with more
speakers to be announced soon.
Paul Ramsey (me!), Conference Chair of the 2007 FOSS4G conference,
will be reprising his role, along with an experienced committee from
the North America chapter of OSGeo to back him.
We have an open call for sponsorship, which can include exhibition
space; for more information please visit
http://foss4g-na.org/sponsorship/. The event already has strong
support from the community, with a growing set of sponsors that
includes OpenGeo, Radiant Blue, AppGeo, and Spatialytics.

Space is limited to 300 attendees only, so you should sign up today to
ensure that you can be a part of this exciting event!
