There is an unofficial "Conference Committee" at conference.osgeo.org, mostly
initialized from the existing international steering committee.  We are trying
to issue an RFP for this, but have had trouble finding someone willing to lead
the conference committee.  A bit stalled on this point actually.

The plan is that we would issue an RFP by no later than FOSS4G, and hopefully
select a site by early November.   But of course our plan was to have a
selection done by FOSS4G and that slid.
