Rendez-vous OSGeo-Qc is starting to take shape!

(Version Française)

With the publication of its impressive conference program last week, the June 15-16 Rendez-vous OSGeo-Québec is really starting to take shape. The response to the call for presentations that ended on April 15th has been amazing, and what was only a great idea 6 months ago is now turning into an memorable and very exciting event!

On the program:
  • 5 invited speakers who will talk about the OSGeo Foundation, its international activities and its software projects
  • Representatives from OSGeo's Francophone local chapter will talk about its activities
  • 21 local talks grouped under the following themes in relation with Free and Open Source Geomatics:
    • Use cases
    • Introduction
    • Business
    • Education
    • Technologies
  • A discussion about the launch of an open geospatial data project in Quebec
And of course the social and networking part:
  • An OSGeo "5 à 7" (ice breaker) on the Tuesday night
  • A boat cruise on the Saguenay Fjord on the Wednesday night, in collaboration with Vision Géomatique.
Registrations have already started to come in, and I take this opportunity to remind you that the early bird rate (25% discount) ends in 3 days, that is on Friday April 30th. Go ahead and register now by visiting http://rendez-vous-osgeo-qc.org/2010/inscription/ (The registration page is in French, if you need help, please do not hesitate to contact me directly via email)

Finally, I would like to extend big thanks to our first round of partners who make this event possible. Their support is not only financial, it is also moral. They are listed at: http://rendez-vous-osgeo-qc.org/2010/partenaires/

Looking forward to seeing you in June!
