FOSS4G 2009 Press Release 30
Sydney, Australia. 7 September 2009. http://2009.foss4g.org
FOSS4G Conference Organisors are now looking at how much space to allocate for posters and are inviting prospective poster authors to register their interest. Posters are a great way to contribute and be seen if you don't have time to prepare a presentation. Many work places will already have suitable posters, now is the time to think about whether they cover projects that may be of interest to the FOSS4G community.
If you think you have a poster or want to make one, please visit the FOSS4G web site and submit your poster idea soon. On topic posters are accepted on a "first come, first served" basis, until there is no more room or the deadline passes (Monday 21 September). (http://2009.foss4g.org/posters/).
Posters should be related to Free and Open Source Geospatial software (FOSS4G). Posters need not be technical and may describe a project that makes use of FOSS4G software. Posters can be A0 or A1 in size.
For more information about Posters, contact Antti Roppola, FOSS4G Posters coordinator:
