This from the OSGeo Conference committee... The Open Source Geospatial Foundation, or OSGeo, has released a request for proposal, or RFP, (available here as a PDF) for the hosting of the FOSS4G 2009 conference. With the overwhelming success of the recent FOSS4G 2007 conference in Victoria Canada (http://www.foss4g2007.org/), and as excitement begins to build for
FOSS4G 2008 in Cape Town South Africa (http://www.foss4g2008.org/), OSGeo again aims for the 2009 conference to be a major geospatial conference during that year. The RFP solicitation closes January 11th, 2008.
