LinuxTag 2006 is presented in cooperation with the German Unix Users Group (GUUG) on May 3 - 6, 2006, in the Rhein-Main-Hallen, Wiesbaden, Germany.

As every year since 1996, LinuxTag invites you to take advantage of its unique synthesis: LinuxTag is a complete conference program and a professional exhibition; a unique information platform where .COM meets .ORG.

Open Source Geospatial Foundation Projects

An exhibition area of 24 sqm has been reserved for OSGeo projects. This might be a forerunner of how to Operate OSGeo Booth.

There is a close affiliation with the PostgreSQL Group and PostGIS as a friend project .As part of the SDI stack it will be good to have four days of f2f interaction.

Workshop, OSGeo Meeting and Sprint Area

We have requested for a meeting room in the conference area to use for face to face meetings, conduct workshops or to set up an ad hoc sprint, contest, Open Space, whatever. Currently we aim at a room capacity of up to 40 participants, confirmation pending.

OSGeo Foundation presentation

A slot has been requested in the main conference program to present Open Source Geospatial Foundation mission, projects and news.
