Dear FOSS4G enthusiast,

It is with great honor and joy that we announce that the registration 
for FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest is open [1]! And more..

We promised to do our best to make this global FOSS4G the most 
affordable of all times and we kept our word. Joining the geospatial 
international community for one week packed with dynamic, valuable, 
timely events in a vibrant European capital city is more at hand than 
ever before. The EarlyBird for FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest is at the 
historical level of 330 EUR and it offers you everything you could ever 
need for such a tech gathering:

- Access to plenary session (28- 30 august)
- Access to conference tracks (28- 30 august)
- Access to 300+ talks
- Access to mobile app
- Ability to contact attendees
- Access to Ice Breaker Party (29 august)
- Access to Gala Dinner (29 august)
- Access to Pub Race Offers (28-30 august)
- Access to Academic papers post event
- Access to presentations post event
- Conference kit
- Email support

The #historicalearlybird registration is coupled with the unbelievable 
accessible accommodation and traveling expenses. Bucharest is a 
significant European traffic node and one of the low-cost favorite 
destination points, more than 70 airports have direct connections [2] 
with Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport (also check our CARTO 
interactive map with estimated prices [3]). Browsing through the 
accommodation page on the FOSS4G 2019 website [4], you’ll find all 
types, ranging from a wonderful downtown hostel with a sky bar to city 
center 5* hotels, we have special negotiated deals for any taste and 
wallet. Please be aware that, due to high demand, the special prices are 
available only until the end of January.

Not convinced yet? To show our appreciation for our early participants, 
we have prepared 100 special T-shirts for the first 100 registered 
participants. Not convinced yet? Be among the first 100, and you will 
also receive the Romanian Curios Passport. Curious? Be among the first 
100 registered participants.

No FOSS4G would be possible without the valuable input of sponsors. They 
are the conference’s backbone contributing to the values, principles and 
progress of our community. Support us in our work to organize FOSS4G2019 
Bucharest as one of the most memorable FOSS4G events. The call for 
sponsors is now open. Please, take a look at our suggestions [5] and 
find the one that best suits your needs and preferences.

Sponsoring is not yet possible but you want to actively contribute to 
the success of FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest? Become a volunteer! Besides 
valuable input in making FOSS4G 2019 happen, you will receive a free 
ticket to the conference (including the ice breaker and gala dinner). 
Interested [6]?

Sponsorship is not for you, neither volunteering but you still want to 
help FOSS4G 2019, then Spread the Word [7]!

Yet of course, traveling to a FOSS4G is meeting the geospatial gurus, 
old friends and collaborators, making new friends, finding new 
opportunities and presenting your own work. Within the next week, 
another important call will open, the Call for Papers and Workshops. The 
committees are almost fully  formed and ready for action. We are honored 
to say that the FOSS4G 2019 program will be shaped by remarkable people 
in the geospatial international community. Check out the Committee 
webpage [8] to see who will review your FOSS4G 2019 contribution.

In the weeks to come, important steps will follow, as opening the call 
for academic papers, announcing keynote speakers, so stay tuned 
[9][10][11]! We promise our #historicalearlybird will prove to be even 
more convincing, as FOSS4G2019 Bucharest wheels turn.

With hope to see you all here in Bucharest, best wishes for a Happy New 
FOSS4G 2019 Bucharest team
