As a follow up to Maria’s call, as you probably know, we have a MoU 
https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/MOU_ISPRS with ISPRS and these kind of 
activities are good examples of opportunities that the MoU covers. I 
have set up a wiki page where you can sign up  if you are interested in 
helping out to organize an OSGeo Pavilion and a forum (or several fora) 
on all things Open-Geo at the ISPRS congress in Nice in 2020. 

Please sign up on the wiki by June 1 (next Friday) so that we can see 
how much interest there is and we will prepare the answer to ISPRS 
congress organizers based on the interest from the community. Here is 
  the congress website again: http://www.isprs2020-nice.com/

Thank you all for supporting this excellent opportunity,
