Hi Maelle,

Using the name "FOSS4G-Be" is no problem for activities related with the
promotion and use of FOSS4G software.
In 2013 I organized the OSGeoGhent event [1] and wanted to organize a
second version in May this year.

The Global FOSS4G conference will start next week in Portland [2], so if
you could provide more details later this week about the venue and the
right date, we can announce the event on the general assemblee of OSGeo
next week.

Will the event be in English or in French?
