Dear members of the GRASS GIS community,

As some of you may have already heard, FOSS4G-CEE will have a second 
edition, organised by geo-spatial.org in collaboration with OSGeo 
Romanian Local Chapter and with the support of many Romanian and 
European partners [1]. The event will take place on the 16-20th of June, 
in Bucharest, Romania.

The preparations are fervently ongoing, but many important steps have 
already been made. The opportunities to be actively involved in the 
conference are many and various. The call for papers and workshops is 
open, please check the list of main topics [2]. We are also putting 
together two more adjacent events, chances to socialize, talk smart and 
code: an open geodata hackathon [3] and a code sprint day [4], both on 
Thursday, the 20th of June, and both placed in great locations in Bucharest.

To show off a little bit, we are happy to say that we have great keynote 
speakers (Jeff McKenna, Paul C. Smits, Jáchym Čepický - list is not yet 
closed), managed to keep the ticket prices really low (free for students 
in early bird registration), have the event in a great, intriguing town 
with wonderful locations and with... really cheap and good beer.

For more details, feel free to check [5].

Warm regards,
