FOSS4G-BE 2015 Call for Sponsors
FOSS4G Belgium 2015
After different successful events, such as OSGeo Ghent (2013), beOpenGIS (2014) and the geospatial devroom at FOSDEM (2015), the Dutch speaking and French speaking Open GIS communities in Belgium have decided to join their forces in a Belgian chapter of the OSGEO foundation and to organise the first FOSS4G Belgium.
The event will be hosted in Brussels at environment.brussels, The Environment and Energy Agency of the Brussels Capital Region. The date will be 29 October 2015.
The goal of the conference is to target a broad audience. Apart from a plenary session there will be place for interactive workshops and debates, both in English and in the major official languages of Belgium: Dutch and French.
We are looking for sponsors who want to support this event.

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation, or OSGeo, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support the collaborative development of open source geospatial software, and promote its widespread use. The foundation provides financial, organizational and legal support to the broader open source geospatial community. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit. OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.
The foundation's projects are all freely available and useable under an OSI-certified open source license.
The upcoming Belgian chapter aims at translating the general OSGeo missions to the Belgian context by organising networking and information events.
