Open Source GIS Conference--Portland, OR
April 16th and 17th, 2010
Portland State University
Portland, Oregon
45.511873,-122.68423

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 in the Urban Center and will have access to several rooms for different tracks. Track 1 is in a room that seats 60, track 2 in a room that seats 30, several other smaller rooms available for more focused "sessions".

If it is sensed by the organizing committee that more than 100 people will attend, Percy can look into more rooms on campus. Smith Center is booked all day Saturday, so it is unavailable.
