Green = confirmed & ticket, and abstract given. Yellow = confirmed, but no ticket yet. White = not responded to any e-mails yet, may be no-shows.

  • Stu’s “non-panel” (number 21) is called... ?
  • Order of keynotes
  • Still waiting for where Harry’s competition is.
  • Only problem, row 84: not enough time for OSMF working groups?
  • Row 26, not a problem, have a rest 5 or 10 mins early
  • Think it’s all okay, but good to keep having everyone look over & check it.
  * Think of titles for sessions (times between breaks) if possible.
  • Items in bold are of no significance (Rob: They have some significance to me - e.g. keeping track of where we must keep sessions from the same speaker separate).

Conference Presentations (Mary) 1 person needs an invitation for visa, Henk working on. 2 didn’t want publicity when registred (will check programme ok - Mary’s sent emails) Brian to chase Henk to check AND presentation details. Conference Guide (Brian)

Discussion and decision on layout plus volunteers to edit - suggest one per day Some abstracts will need to be edited to cut down, not many. Volunteers to help Brian (Friday) & Mary (Saturday) copy & paste conference programme to guide document. Mike (Sunday) can help.

       Use revised abstracts in Column Q.

Conference Volunteer team (Rob)

We can leave this till next week - there's no urgency on this

Promotional schedule (Shaun/Rob) - need Google Drive spreadsheet for planning

       Would be great to have this.
       Shaun can/will do, he’s just been playing by ear so far.
       [Google link removed] is the spreadsheet for the publicity.

Conference Media Streaming (Brian)

Quick decision needed on twitter feed display (I'll explain in the call - functionality I forgot to mention before) Civico Live suggest we have a twitter screen in the conference (not directly behind the audience)

       Brian: can add complication, cost, difficulty, distraction. Could just do it in the refreshment area
       Agreed refreshment area only.

               Marketing Birmingham, have they got some B&W image we could use.
               Will have to order 1000, just a simple OSM reusable one?
                       Wider than Brum, very generic
                       Reflective for cycling? Reflective vinyl stickers. - but not big funds

       Deb is chasing up Yandex, who has a person coming to do a talk.

       Got quite a few more “no”s by going back to people

               Ask Henk if he has anything from Mapbox, Garmin, etc
               Any of them coming?
               Jon doing a talk on “Vision of”, following up from Saman’s SotM US talk
       Esri Inc people, want to get involved instead of Esri UK?

               New areas are keen to attend/learn, not to sponsor yet
               Existing businesses have tight purse strings this year
       Takes a week to get logos out of them, so nearing end time for new sponsors
