Hi Conference Committee,

I have taken the time to draft the 2016 call for hosting document.  The 
documents are stored in SVN[1], so please feel free to edit them 
directly with your changes.

There are no major changes, but here is a summary of the proposed 
Important Dates:

Letters of Intent (Stage 1) due: 2015-01-09
Stage 1 question period: 	2015-01-10 to 2015-01-18
Stage 1 decision: 		2015-01-19
Proposals (Stage 2) due: 	2015-02-20
Stage 2 question period: 	2015-02-21 to 2015-02-28
Final decision: 		2015-03-01

I have sent a short financial report template to Darrell for 2014 
Portland, and once that is added to the document, I believe we can call 
the document ready.

My name is on the document currently, but if someone else wants to drive 
this please do; otherwise we will move ahead with this.  The OSGeo 
Conference Committee (that I am not a member of) will of course be 
responsible for voting for 2016, and then take that result to the OSGeo 
Board (nothing has changed there).

Thanks everyone, looking forward to another wonderful FOSS4G event in 
2016 in Europe!!!
