Agnostic about either option, as I probably only be able to attend TPAC.

However, I am also happy to host a meeting at ANU in Canberra (voted 3rd in next year’s lonely planet best cities to visit list https://www.lonelyplanet.com/best-in-travel/cities) any time between January and August if there is interest.

I think option (1) looks better, partly because I think it would be good to have the first meeting soon - Geonovum in Amersfoort sounds ideal to me.
And fair/preferable that it's not all in Europe, though having said that I'm not sure I'd be able to go to the Fort Collins meeting.

Dear IG members,

Before we all go off on holiday, let's do some planning for the next year. In 2018, we want to have at least two face to face meetings. The charter tells us to have at least one at an OGC meeting and one at a W3C meeting.

Jeremy, Scott, Francois and I have come up with two options:

- One f2f in jan/feb, location tbd (I could host again at Geonovum, other offers welcome)
- One at OGC TC 4-8 June at Fort Collins, Colorado
- One at TPAC in Lyon in October.
The advantage of this scenario is that not all f2f meetings are in Europe in this option. We add a meeting in Jan/Feb because otherwise we have to wait until June for our first f2f, which may slow our momentum.

- One at OGC TC in 19-23 March in Orleans
- One at TPAC in Lyon in October
The advantage is that we only have to travel two times for f2f meetings, and they're nicely distributed over the year. However, both are in Europe.

Please let us know what you think about the timing and locations, and what the likelyhood is of your attendance!
