Last year's conference in Minneapolis was a great event and this
year's it should be even better. We hope to organize a technical
workshop on GeoNetwork opensource as well as a presentation.
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 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,
