> Hi,

> I've copied the text below as well:
>  FOSS4G 2009 – More than an international Geospatial Open Source Conference
> The conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G)
> will be held from 20-23 October, 2009 in Sydney, Australia. _
> http://2009.foss4g.org <http://2009.foss4g.org/>_
> Growing out of regional Open Source community meetings, the FOSS4G
> conference has been reborn in recent years as a meeting place for
> international geospatial experts to gather and discuss the problems and
> opportunities of the day. With themes ranging from the integration of Open
> Source with Proprietary systems to the building of Spatial Data
> Infrastructures and application of Open Geospatial Standards, the conference
> offers a unique opportunity to tap into the wealth of knowledge and
> experience available among the Open Source developers, sponsors and
> geospatial professionals of all persuasions.
>   Highlights from FOSS4G 2009 include:
> *The Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP)*: FOSS4G will launch the
> OGC's Climate Change Integration Plugfest (CCIP), which demonstrates
> standards based interoperability between Open Source and Proprietary
> geospatial applications. It consists of servers with multiple virtual
> machines, each installed with geospatial applications offering standards
> based web services. There will be many opportunities to review SDI
> components, and talk directly to vendors and implementers about the
> effectiveness of different approaches and components.

> *FOSS4G Live DVD*: Live DVDs, based on the Xubuntu operating system and
> including Geospatial Open Source Software, will be given to all delegates.
> Users can boot a Live DVD on their computer and trial the software without
> installing or affecting the existing system.

> *Installfest*: The informal Installfest pre-dinner slot will give delegates
> the opportunity to meet in a common area and install a wide variety of FOSS
> software on their laptops, EEPC or any other system they care to bring in.
> Community members will be on hand to assist with any troubles and provide
> help and insight into the software.
> *Workshops and Tutorials*: Workshops and Tutorials allow presenters to lead
> attendees through applications, integration solutions, or other topics in an
> interactive environment.
> *Presentations*: The meat of the conference is its presentations. Drawing
> on a huge community of local, regional and international experts we will
> discuss some of the most current and poignant topics in the industry today.
> Expect to hear honest presentations discussing weaknesses as well as
> strengths, like the famous Web Map Server performance shootout.
> *Birds of a Feather*: Rooms have been set aside for semi-organised meetings
> between like minded groups. Some prominent community initiatives started in
> prior FOSS4G Birds of a Feather sessions.
> *Code Sprint*: The weekend after FOSS4G is reserved for the Hackers' Code
> Sprint. Hackers will be locked in a basement with lots of bandwidth, pizzas
> and coke. (Well, maybe something better than that, but we don't want to
> spoil the mystical hacker image).
