Greetings everybody,

The 7th Libre Software Meeting ( is going 
to be held between July 4th and July 8th, 2006, in Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy 
<> , France. This is a worldwide meeting for 
developers and those involved in the free software community. Every 
year, more than fifty nationalities are represented and 1500 visitors 
get free access to some 300 lectures given by well-known experts. 
Broached topics are very varied, from cutting edge technical subjects 
with world class speakers, to "large public" topics as free software in 
education or local administrations field.

Clément Jaquemet is in charge of GIS aspects for the State Modernisation 
Department in the French Ministry of Finance. I assist him to coordinate 
a workshop at this meeting on the GIS topic. Thus we are looking for 
speakers from public or private sector that want to show their project 
or ideas linked to the GIS free software subject. We think that your 
recently created OSGeo Foundation could be worth to participate to this 
event and describe what you're doing. Presentations last 40min and 
contain time for exchanging and debating with the participants.

Would anyone of your organisation be interested to participate to this 
event ? If not, would you have some contacts (in US or Europe) that 
could be interested to this proposal ?
