[GeoSciML] Next GeoSciML/ERML/Vocabularies face to face meeting [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

In terms of cost, North America is generally the best outside of Europe for Europeans and west or east coast doesn't make a huge difference.

In terms of co-location - it would be quite nice to meet in conjunction with an OGC TC although I guess the logistics in terms of rooms etc would be more difficult. The only obvious co-location meeting in Europe I can think of is the EGU which is held in April in Vienna each year. From my point of view this would also be a time to avoid if we meet elsewhere as I am likely to need to attend the EGU for another project.

> 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

> As a separate process, I will be arranging several teleconference
> meetings to push along the development and documentation of GeoSciML

> 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

> Cheers,
