It seems to me that if we could coordinate our efforts we could try to
get the following presentations together:


 - QGIS 'nuts & bolts' - all about the Quantum GIS open source desktop
GIS application project.
- Using QGIS libs in your application


- plugin writers workshop ( we should get feedback from Marco on
whether there was a lot of demand on this )
- Programming QGIS with python

> Greetings,
> The FOSS4G2007 conference is scheduled for September 24-27, 2007 in
> Victoria, Canada. I sent out information on the call for workshops
> earlier in the week. The web page can be found at: http://
> www.foss4g2007.org/workshops.html
> It would be good if several of you (developers/users) submitted a
> proposal. I think workshops that illustrate the application of QGIS
> in real-world situations would be good, however they would have to
> have a broad enough scope to appeal to a wide audience.
> Developer focused workshops are also of value. In particular,
> something along the lines of plugin development, application
> development using QGIS libraries, and plugin/application development
> using Python would be of interest. I'm sure you have more and better
> ideas.
> Read the call for workshops to see the focus areas the organizers are
> interested in for this years event.
> I have a favor to ask. If you are planning to submit a workshop
> proposal, please email me with a few details. I would like to not
> only be aware of what is being proposed, but also be aware of any
> overlap and possibility for collaboration. If you want to share your
> plan with the list, feel free to do so, otherwise just email me
> directly. I have set up a wiki page that can be used to document
> conference plans as they evolve:
>     http://wiki.qgis.org/qgiswiki/FOSS4G2007_Conference
> If you need write access to the wiki, create an account and then
> email me or <tim at linfiniti.com>.
> Finally, we are hoping to be able to offer a subsidy for folks
> presenting a workshop or paper at the conference. This would apply to
> those that lack any corporate/academic funding. The amount of subsidy
> will be decided on a case by case basis and will offset some of your
> costs, not cover them all.
> Thanks for your participation in QGIS!
