unless Redlands counts.

In retrospect, I should have said "american continent" actually - in a spirit of not having the same people always doing the expensive trip. It was really from looking at where the last meetings were (Rome, Edinburgh, Wellington, St-Petersbugh), so Europe, Europe, Oceania, Europe.  Since we don't have people from South America, Africa or Asia (we used to have Japan) sitting at GeoSciML meetings, north america seems the logical spot.  But truth is , if we look at regular attendees," american continent(s)" ,  essentially means Canada or US (or Mexico - if I remember correctly, they were present at Tucson meeting).

This, said, I realise, unless I'm wrong, St-Petersburgh is the first (?) meeting that was not organised by a volunteer attending the previous meeting, so my logic does not work anymore.  I can ask what our Vancouver office thinks (bit closer to OZ, but quite an agony for Europeans)

 I'm also fine with Canberra - specially since I now know where the name comes from.

Hi all,

I’d like to start the conversation about the time and place for the next GeoSciML/ERML/Vocabularies +/- OneGeology face-to-face meeting probably in 2014.  (Jouni, Steve, Tim – I assume that you still want to co-locate meetings if we can?).

As a separate process, I will be arranging several teleconference meetings to push along the development and documentation of GeoSciML v4.  Stay tuned for that email soon.

Please reply with:

a)      any offers to host a F2F meeting (location and date)

b)      your personal preference for location and date

c)       dates in the next 12 months that you definitely cannot attend

d)      suggested other events with which we could co-locate (note that no OGC TC meetings have yet been scheduled for 2014)

I’ll start the ball rolling by offering Canberra in April or May 2014 as a potential location for the next F2F.  I think Eric also suggested that USA is due for a meeting.
