Hi all, who are concerned in the FOSS4G-Europe topic,

by now, 14 people [1] declared, to be members of Conference Europe committee.

We should now make two or three important decisions (I assume, we all
want European event happen):

* When will it take place, so it does not conflict with other events
* Where will it take place (call for venue)
* How will it be organized, what is it's place within our open source
geospatial community

About the 3rd topic, I hope we agree, that:

* Foss4g-Europe shall bring something from FOSS4G-Global to local community
* But is more related to European topics
* And should be more practical focused (hackathons, sprints are most welcomed)

When will it take place: Last years, it (together with CEE event) it
was about "beginning of summer". We are trying to fit somehow between
regional events and FOSS4G-Global. Most of you will definitely agree,
that there are already so many events, that it makes sense, to try to
join them, instead of filling another gap, when we can focus on work
as well.

Last year, I was asking, whether it would be possible to join it to
Vienna Code sprint or FOSSGIS in Germany. Same applies to other local
events and I still think, it is good idea. That would bring people
together (again).

Any thoughts to this? Or shall we just call for venue with and see,
what will come?
