April 10-12, 2012
FOSS4G North America 2012
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Washington, DC – USA
On the heels of last year’s successful and well-attended international FOSS4G event in Colorado, many of us in the community of free and open source geospatial software developers, users, and advocates in North America recognized the need for a regular gathering in North America. So this year we have come together to plan the first ever FOSS4G North America conference, an event to take place April 10–12, 2012 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. FOSS4G-NA will bring together many public and private-sector stakeholders at the forefront of some of the world’s most innovative free and open source software to discuss and work on building tools to help solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
FOSS4G is the global conference organized by OSGeo that focuses on Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial; FOSS4G-NA is a regional event for North America. This year’s FOSS4G is scheduled for September 10-15, 2012 in Beijing, China.
We are pleased to announce that we have confirmed Michael Byrne, the Federal Communications Commission’s Geospatial Information Officer as a keynote speaker. Please read on or join our mailing list for more information about the FOSS4G North America 2012.
