  • Sponsorship & Exhibition
    • Hinrich Paulsen, Arnulf Christl
    • Sponsorship is a source where we can generate early income, so to start this process early is a major part. Also I guess, that most companies are planning their financial budget this year, so it is important to let them know about the possibilities of sponsoring FOSS4G.

    • I talked to Textkoch this FOSSGIS and he offered his help together with Monika Resch here (of course not for free :-(). Public relations work may play a major role to get many people attending our conference. So for this issues we need a group of people and also ideas on how to structure this. Klaus Greve also said, that we might talk to the public realtions office of the university first.

    • We need an organizers of the code sprint. The group cares for room, snacks and acts as contact persons for this event.
