Since this event is happening soon, I wanted to make people aware of it if you're in a position to attend. Normally I'd have put it on the announcements section for our agenda but I just found out the details this week.  

See http://www.epa.gov/appsfortheenvironment/forum.html

“Building Innovation Through Partnerships: Apps for the Environment Forum” will commemorate the US Environmental Protection Agency's Apps for the Environment Challenge and present a vision for the future of environmental apps and mobile technology. 

The forum will be held on November 8, 2011 at the Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia USA.  Attendees will learn about efforts to promote environmental applications from government, business, and tech-industry leaders and discover cutting-edge environmental apps.  

Attendees will also have an opportunity to share and collaborate on environmental data needs and innovative solutions and develop partnerships through breakout sessions, networking and  exhibits.   Registration is open and there is no charge to attend.

Live streaming will be happening, see the above link for details "Live Streaming and Recordings". 

This challenge attracted 100 ideas, 38 apps submitted and more than 2000 votes.  The apps all used open government data but I don't yet know if any used LoD.  TBD.
