FOSS4G 2012 Beijing Cancelled

The FOSS4G Beijing Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has requested that FOSS4G accept its decision to cancel this years fall event planned for Beijing. The following letter to the OSGeo Discussion list, and to expected participants explains the situation. I'd heard rumblings of concern at FOSS4GNA back in April.

	Dear OSGeo Board,

With great regret, the FOSS4G Beijing Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has made the difficult decision of cancelling the event due to a lack of financial resources and the unexpected withdrawal of the Professional Conference Organizer.  Please officially approve our decision and advise any procedures we may need to follow to minimize the impact on the community.

We also wrote letter for FOSS4G Beijing 2012 potential participants, we will publish this announcement on the foss4g2012 website and e-mail them after we get feedback from Board.
