Hi Steve, and all,

Here are the two abstracts that I am planning on submitting. Hopefully 
you (SteveL) are okay with having your name associated with them.

In both cases other co-presenters will be much welcome. If the 
presentations are selected then I'll come back here to plan them as a 
group and have some fun delivering them as a team in Minneapolis.

== MapServer Project Status Report - Meet the developers! ==

=== Presenter(s): ===
  * Steve Lime, Minnesota DNR
  * Daniel Morissette, Mapgears
  * Members of the MapServer Team

=== Abstract: ===

This session starts with a status report of the MapServer project, 
followed by an open question/answer session to provide a opportunity for 
users to interact with members of the MapServer project team.

We will go over the main features and enhancements introduced in 
MapServer 6.2 released in November of 2012, including the addition of 
the new TinyOWS and MapCache components, the current and future 
direction of the project, and finally discuss contribution opportunities 
for interested developers and users.

Don’t miss this chance to meet and chat face-to-face with the members of 
the MapServer project team!

== MapServer - The history of a Community ==

=== Presenter(s): ===
  * Daniel Morissette, Mapgears
  * Steve Lime, Minnesota DNR
  * Members of the MapServer Community

=== Abstract: ===

FOSS4G-NA welcomes you to Minnesota, the homeland of MapServer! This 
year also marks the 10 year anniversary of the first MapServer Users 
Meeting which was held right here in Minnesota in 2003. This was the 
first ever opportunity for several members of the MapServer Community to 
meet face to face. MUM 2003 was such a success that it became a yearly 
gathering and one of the predecessors of the FOSS4G Conference Series.

Let's take a few minutes to dust off some old websites, emails and 
pictures and have a fun and relaxing look at how MapServer and its 
Community have evolved over the years, and contributed to make FOSS4G 
and OSGeo what they are today.

All participants will leave with a smile on their face and free license 
of the software.
