  • Sandro Santilli (PostGIS & GEOS)
  • Mark Cave Ayland (PostGIS)
  • Mateusz Loskot (GGL)
  • Sébastien Loriot (CGAL)

Not to forget

  • You're laptop with all softwares to work with
  • AC European adaptator (for your laptop)
  • If you have an RJ 45 wire that's a good point (if not we will provide)
  • Smile and happyness


On May 15th in the evening (6:00 PM) an event will be organized (still in Paris) to allow some happy few PostGIS (power) users to exchange with the PostGIS dev guys.

The goal is to enlarge the vision to broader future axes, through discussions and/or small working groups.

So if you are already involved in the PostGIS project (or willing to), want to exchange with the dev team, and/or meet some other PostGIS afficionados at a cool event, just come ! (beers included)

For practical reasons we have to limit the amount of participants to 15. First registered, first served.

(if you want additional information, or want don't have osgeo id to registered on this Wiki, send a mail to <postgis@…>)
