Thank you to all of the teams that have submitted a letter of intent to 
host the FOSS4G 2012 event:

- Prague, Czech Republic 
- Rome, Italy 
- Hanoi, Vietnam 

As all of the future correspondence regarding the bids will occur on the 
'conference_dev' mailing list, please make sure that your local 
committee team members join that list now (subscribe at 

Now I ask all of the OSGeo Conference Committee members to review the 3 
letters of intent, and begin to ask questions through the conference_dev 
mailing list regarding the contents of the letters (please keep in mind 
that teams only had to outline a few points as stated in the RFP on page 

By this coming Friday (2011-07-15) we will hold a vote by committee 
members to see which teams will move on to the Bid Submission stage 
(each committee member must select a single letter as their choice, and 
a letter must receive the backing of at least 2 members to move onto the 
next stage).

I personally am very excited to receive these 3 letters (I have visited 
each of the 3 wonderful countries).

On behalf of the OSGeo Conference Committee
