Dear Open (geo)Data enthusiasts, supporters and devotees,

Last year, the European geospatial community was inviting you to share 
your work, ideas and views on open (geo)data at the FOSS4G Europe 
[http://europe.foss4g.org/2015/]. If you were not able to attend, do 
check the presentations online, a lot of ideas presented are still valid 

But what is software without data? Not that much, so this time it is the 
geospatial international community asking to see your work.

FOSS4G 2016 is the global free and open source software for geospatial 
conference hosted by OSGeo and this year it's in Bonn, Germany! Thus, if 
you want to visit Germany and meet one of the Open Source geospatial 
world legends between 21 - 28 August, join in!

The Call for Submission is opened and will stay that way by 21st of March.

For other details, feel free to wander around the website
