we are recovering from the FOSSGIS 2006 conference which was a great 
success. 40 presentations, 11 workshops, references to some 20 Free and 
Open Source Software GIS packages including all 8 that are currently 
incubating at OSGeo. 330 participants accompanied presentations, 
contributed to the workshops and joined in discussions for two day 
including an evening event. Besides the majority coming from Germany we 
were happy to welcome visitors from Austria, Switzerland, the 
Netherlands and Italy.

We (the 2006 organizing committee)
learned a lot about what people want and need during the whole conference.

At the end of the conference we had a round up plenary meeting 
discussing how to organize the next event.

I will put together a report summarizing each point for further 
discussion in English.

Additionally we wanted to suggest to distribute a more general report 
via the announce list (announce at to a broader 
audience - if this list is intended to be used for this kind of 
information. We are putting together a press release and I would be 
happy to translate in to English.

The pages at are still rather empty. I 
suggest to at least put some links there.

Best regards,
