Thank you Marco (and Gael) for your nice work ! I love the web site, I find
that the visual is improved!
I have just a few remarks in addition to those of Moritz but they are only
small suggestions in following pages:
Just wondering if the Magritte’s citation shouldn’t be translate for each
language e.a.« ceci n'est pas une conférence » → « this is not a lecture”
for the English version etc.
For the section “Data & Services” I wonder if it is not better to put
“Objectives” with this kind of description: “What about the future of
FOSS4G in Belgium? Community-building and networking around specific
• *About us*
In "FOSS4G Belgian team", I think following sentence is not clear and could
*« Belgium is as a country divided in at least 3 speaking languages and 3
official languages. »*
but we could add a sentence about our mission (underlined text) :
*…The active OSGeo community members today are either active in the
OSGeo.nl <http://osgeo.nl/>, the OSGeo.fr <http://osgeo.asso.fr/> or in
several OSGeo communities <http://www.osgeo.org/community.html>.*
*OSGeo Belgium will act as a bridge between several language communities
and cultures, because of it's unique multilingual composition.*
• *Call for papers*
For the “Format of presentations”, we could ask that all slides are in
I think after the title “Format of presentations”, we need to add a title
“Abstract submission” and move there the last sentence in the new section.
Title of the presenting; author’s names and institution; 300 words max.
We probably need to choose a shorted deadline for abstract submission as
for example September 19, 2015.
