FOSS4G2006, the international conference addressing geospatial data  
technologies developed by or of relevance to the Open  Source  
community, will be held September 12-15th, 2006 in Lausanne,   
Switzerland. The conference will bring together all of the  Free and  
Open Source Software for Geoinformatics (FOSS4G) communities.  The  
conference incorporates the OSGIS Conference, Mapserver User  
Meeting,  GRASS Users Conference, Java oriented FOSS4G and EOGEO  
Workshops with  the intent to be broadly inclusive.

Lausanne, Switzerland will host the conference, making it the first  
time many of these groups will  meet in Europe. A committee is  
working to design a program with elements  that will interest  
participants from the novice to the expert. The  conference strives  
to build on the successes and enthusiasm generated  by previous,  
related meetings.
