Open Source GIS Conference--Portland, OR
April 16th and 17th, 2010
Portland State University
Portland, Oregon

This "unconference" will follow a 2-day traditional GIS conference, GIS In Action(GIA), which will also include some open source tracks--mostly concentrated on Thursday. GIA has a single day rate for those who would only want to attend Thursday.

This Friday/Saturday event will take place at University Place and will have access to several rooms for different tracks. Track 1 is in a room that seats 125, tracks 2 and 3 in rooms that seats 70.

Depending on the number of attendees, we can scale back accordingly within three days of the event.

There will be a registration fee of $15 to $20 to pay for rooms, and possibly some refreshments. Lunch will be up to the attendees, there is a nearby stand of food carts which have excellent choices.
