Hello folks,

Time is running fast, and the involvement of the OSGeo Local Chapter in the
Software Freedom Day and GIS Day is becoming more and more imminent. So I
think it is time to set deadlines for abstracts.

   - SFD is in 1 month. In order to make sure we are all ready and engaged
   into that event, I would like to set the deadline for *Wednesday, August
   7 at 11:59 PM*.
   - GIS-Day is further away in time, but Scott has a meeting related to
   the organization of this event on August 14. Having abstract will help him
   to get us a lab. So I would like to set the deadline to *Monday, August
   12, 11:59 PM*.

The abstract is something really simple, you will find below the abstracts
Javed sent to me as an example.

*Javed's Abstract for Optiks :*

*Ball Aerospace developed Opticks in December 2007 as a Free and Open
Source Software (FOSS) project that allows remote sensing TDW Data Analyst
to gain practical knowledge and develop image processing skills in many of
the digital image processing functions. Opticks provides capability in
areas such as: image enhancement, spectral signature processing,
multispectral, hyperspectral and Synthetic Aperture RADAR image analysis.
Optick is an extensible RSI analysis desktop application. The application
and extensions are written in C ++ and licensed under Lesser General Public
License (LGPL). **Opticks is free to use, distribute and modify. The LGPL
license ensures that once you download Opticks, that version always stays
free and open-source. Application of Opticks, as part of TDW FOSS GeoStack,
for Mineral Explorations will be discussed.*

Let me know if you have any issue, comment, or problem with the abstract.
