Hi All,

FOSS4G Seoul team is very pleased to announce that FOSS4G Seoul
conference is now open for registration.

This year’s International FOSS4G will be held in The-K Hotel, Seoul,
14-19 September, for the first time in Asia.

The annual FOSS4G conference is the largest global gathering focused on
open source geospatial solution. FOSS4G brings together developers,
users, decision-makers and businessmen from a broad spectrum of
organizations and fields of operation. Through six days of workshops,
presentations, discussions and code sprint, FOSS4G participants create
effective and relevant geospatial products, standards, human networks
and business opportunities.

Early bird registration is just USD440 for 3 days of main conference,
and USD100 for half-day of top notch workshops from the world’s best
international presenters. FOSS4G Seoul team has tried its best to keep
the registration fee as low as possible to encourage more people to
attend the conference. Also there is special rate for participants who
reside in Low or Lower-Middle Income Economies.

There is ‘Travel Grant Donation’ option in on-line registration page.
‘Travel Grant Donation’ will be used for students from developing
countries or participants who will be attending FOSS4G Seoul 2015.
Please feel free to donate.
