Dear All,

MapAsia 2006 ( began on 29th Aug, 2006 and
will continue till 1st Sept 2006. I heard that the OSGeo Booth is
attracting lot of attention at the exhibition. The OSGeo T-Shirts
have also reached in time. The brief schedule of OSGeo related
activity at/during MapAsia is as below. Will know more in a few
days time.

Dr. Phisan Santitamnont of Chulalongkron Univ will be giving a
talk on OSGeo during MapAsia. I am not sure when it is scheduled.

China OSGeo Chapter Representative (Prof. Chen) and Japan OSGeo
Chapter (Toru Mori) have sent messages for the Press Conference.

Exhibition includes promotional material of OSGeo Projects, Open
Source related demonstrations and publication.

The intital meet of the proposed Thai OSGeo Chapter is scheduled
for the 8th September, 2006. I am attaching the poster for
the meeting for your information.

Thanks to Calvin, Phisan, Sarawut and dedicated volunteers from
Thailand for their efforts to promote OSGeo at Map Asia 2006.
