Micha, Peter,
With regards to an OSGeo-Live based course, we do have an abstract which 
you can make use of or customise:

The assumption would be that you run through the existing quickstarts in 
the documentation.

If you are still looking for presenters, you might want to look at the 
OSGeo Advocate list and approach likely candidates directly:

Warm regards, Cameron

>> As far as I understand the dates remain to be settled (or Copernicus will do this) and volunteers to present OSGeo projects in the course(s) need to be found. By now everybody who submitted abstracts should have gotten feedback regarding acceptance so we can determine who'll be able to attend the meeting and might be willing to volunteer.
>> My knowledge about Short Courses is limited. Do we have anybody in the group who participated or presented in EGU Short Courses in the past ? This would be very usefuly information about how to make the most of the Short Courses, the Townhall and the sessions.
>> FWIW, the EGU GA continues to grow. In the 2016 the number of abstracts rose by 2000 to about 17.000 abstracts for all Divisions. Chances are good we will meet many FOSS-interested scientists in Vienna :-)
