IST 2006 is in November 21-23 in Helsinki. I've never been to a IST 
conference, from the webpage: "the most important European event in the 
field of Information Society Technologies will coincide with the launch 
of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development".

Networking sessions can be suggested for the organizers. Currently there 
are 105 suggested, the Finnish COSS (center for open source software) 
will have one with the topic of such centers and ONESSI. ONESSI is 
probably "open networked european software & services initiative".

Looks very much networking kind of thing and jargon talk. I could go to 
our COSS's session and talk about OSGeo. I'm not very interested in 
proposing a full session. Link to FP7 (research money...) looks somewhat 

Does anybody here know anything about these things or is going to attend?
