Geospatial Foundation Meeting announced for Chicago

A snippet of info from a recent message posted to the Free GIS list...  In order to help move along the process of starting an "open source  geospatial foundation" there will be a face-to-face meeting in  Chicago, Westin O'Hare, on February 4, 2006, hosted by Autodesk. In  conceiving of this meeting, we have tried (and will continue to try)  to follow these principles: Inclusion. Members from a number of different open source projects  have been invited (see the list so far below) and Autodesk has offered to pay the travel costs of some of these invitees in order to  ensure they can attend if they cannot afford it otherwise. Anyone else is also welcome to attend physically or virtually -- If you are interested in attending to represent one of these communities as a user or you want to propose adding a project to this list, please send an email to: chicago <at> mapserverfoundation.org. See also www.mapserverfoundation.org or see the entire message at http://lists.mapserverfoundation.org/pipermail/discuss/2006-January/000349.html
