As we are moving forward with XOOPS toward 2010, we need to plan for more XOOPS promotion around the world, and at the same time to create opportunities to meet with other XOOPS developers.
Below is a list of few Open Source Conferences around the world in which we could participate and promote XOOPS - either as speakers, or as participants. And after the conference we could meet for a XOOPS Workshop, get to know each other, network, and learn more about XOOPS.

Let us know:
* would you be interested and could participate in any of these conferences

We already talked to Solo71 about potential Summit in Europe, in Brussels. Because he lives there, he offered to help organize it.
Let us know how do you like the idea of a "XOOPS Development Summit"...
