This would be a good conference to have an OSGeo presence at, if we 
already have OSGeo people attending who can man the booth.

I would not want OSGeo to spend any substantial money on this conference 
(bar maybe printing some liveDVDs and fliers). So I suggest our position 
should be:
Yes, we are interested if:
* OSGeo volunteers are already attending and prepared to cover the OSGeo 
booth, or travel expenses or similar are paid to get an OSGeo member to 
the conference
* We are provided with a free booth, or a local partner is prepared to 
cover costs

You may wish to note that OSGeo (here in Australia) is usually offered a 
booth for free, due to the fact that OSGeo is a not-for-profit with very 
little money.
