>> We are delighted to now formally announce that we will be running

>> This will be an online-only event intended to give us a little FOSS4G fix

>> online event as interactive and engaging as possible so we are open to your

>> *Technology*

>> not be mandatory.
>> *Call for Presentations*
>> We welcome technical talks, demos, user stories (particularly ones about
>> the use of FOSS4G tech during the Covid19 crisis), thought pieces... In
>> fact we welcome any talks that are based on Open Source Geo and are not
>> pushing a sales message.
>> We will also be offering a small number of workshops (ca 90 minutes)
>> which will need to be instruction style rather than fully interactive.
>> Our call for presentations
>> <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe_1Hs7RGp1sx7sPAB2KMBanDW36ELkxHJE8nl5_3iMnVivjg/viewform> has
>> been extended until the 18th May, we hope you give us a hard choice
>> choosing what to include in the programme.
>> *Volunteering*
>> We need volunteers to help in the planning and build-up stages and also
>> to help on the big day. If you would like to get involved please fill in
>> the Volunteering form
>> <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe6pVdrMBN4BYw6pEfjPXD8z_oRMZWxQ-tvsh2mrwTcn8aP8Q/viewform>
>> and we will get in touch as the needs arise.
>> We would welcome people to assist in programming, marketing, web stuff,
>> design, responding to delegate enquiries, video editing skills, experience
>> of running large meetings or events on zoom and possibly streaming to
>> youtube. Tell us what you can do and we will get back to you
>> Right now, *we need a FOSS4GUK Online logo* that incorporates the
>> traditional FOSS4G ribbon
>> <https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_Handbook#Logo>. Please send us your
>> ideas.
>> That’s it for now folks, we look forward to your presentation and
>> workshop submissions, your offers of help and most of all seeing you online
>> at FOSS4GUK online on 17th June.
>> We will keep posting formal updates on this list, there will be a new
>> event website at uk.osgeo.org in a few days and look out for lots of
>> activity on our twitter account @OSGeoUK <https://twitter.com/osgeouk>
>> May the FOSS be with you
