Hi UK OSGeo people,

 The GISRUK 2011 conference is being held at Lancaster this year, and
there's burgeoning interest in open-source geo in all its
manifestations. Tyler Mitchell is giving a keynote, and Faunalia are
running a pre-conference workshop. And I'm on the committee.

 The usual corporate big names are already signed up as sponsors, but
it would be great to get some more "open-source-compatible" sponsors
in the spotlight. This is an ideal opportunity to show young
researchers that there's more out there than the big GIS packages they
are introduced to in their courses...

 If your organisation or one you know might be interested in
sponsoring the premier UK GIS research conference, please get in touch
directly with Duncan Whyatt, the local committee chair:
