What a good idea Maria !
Such a Mediterannean regional event could may be gather italin, greek,
spanish and french local chapters, and may be others.
Very good idea.

>> Dear all,
>> I saw with great pleasure the call for organizing the 1st Latin America
>> FOSS4G conference.
>> Congrats to the friends there and let me add my offer to help in any
>> possible way to those who preceded me.
>> The purpose of my e-mail though is a bit different. Taking into account
>> the fact the this year we had the North America regional conference, the
>> central European regional conference and now the Latin America Regional
>> Conference I feel that it is due time to move to a mixed scheme of an
>> international and regional conferences.
>> Thus I propose that we have the odd years (starting from 2013) ONLY the
>> international event (our very successful FOSS4G conference) and the even
>> years (starting from 2014) ONLY the regional conferences.
>> Being in a world in crisis where funding for travel becomes more
>> difficult and where people cannot participate in too many conferences in a
>> year I feel that this is an acceptable compromise.
>> So I call upon the board to decide on this proposal and, of course, all
>> of you to argue in favor :) or against!
>> One final note for the European participation on this list: I suggest
>> that we start organizing a regional European level FOSS4G (if there is
>> agreement also integrating in it the Central-Eastern Europe event) starting
>> from 2014. I volunteer Greece to host the first such event (OK, given that
>> things in Greece will not turn out too bad :)).
>> If there is an initial agreement we can organize things a bit more.
>> Thanks for the consideration of both proposals,
>> Dimitris Kotzinos
