The FOSS4G2007 conference is scheduled for September 24-27, 2007 in Victoria, Canada. I sent out information on the call for workshops earlier in the week. The web page can be found at: http:// www.foss4g2007.org/workshops.html

It would be good if several of you (developers/users) submitted a proposal. I think workshops that illustrate the application of QGIS in real-world situations would be good, however they would have to have a broad enough scope to appeal to a wide audience.

Developer focused workshops are also of value. In particular, something along the lines of plugin development, application development using QGIS libraries, and plugin/application development using Python would be of interest. I'm sure you have more and better ideas.

Read the call for workshops to see the focus areas the organizers are interested in for this years event.

I have a favor to ask. If you are planning to submit a workshop proposal, please email me with a few details. I would like to not only be aware of what is being proposed, but also be aware of any overlap and possibility for collaboration. If you want to share your plan with the list, feel free to do so, otherwise just email me directly. I have set up a wiki page that can be used to document conference plans as they evolve:


If you need write access to the wiki, create an account and then email me or <tim at linfiniti.com>.

Finally, we are hoping to be able to offer a subsidy for folks presenting a workshop or paper at the conference. This would apply to those that lack any corporate/academic funding. The amount of subsidy will be decided on a case by case basis and will offset some of your costs, not cover them all.

Thanks for your participation in QGIS!
