Below is the FOSS4G conference call for workshops...


> The FOSS4G (Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial)  
> conference is
> pleased to announce the Call for Workshops for the 2007 conference,
> being held September 24-27 in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia,
> Canada.
> FOSS4G is the premier conference for the open source geospatial
> community, providing a place for developers, users, and people new to
> open source geospatial to get a full-immersion experience in both
> established and leading edge geospatial technologies.
> This is your chance to showcase your favorite application, integration
> solution, or other topic. You will use your superior classroom  
> skills to
> lead a group of attendees through your chosen topic in either a  
> half-day
> or ninety minute lab or classroom format. Half-day workshops will be
> delivered on Monday, September 24 (the Workshops day), while the  
> ninety
> minute workshops will run concurrently with the presentations  
> during the
> remainder of the conference.
> While we are open to workshops on a wide range of topics, we strongly
> encourage workshop submissions on the following topics:
> Practical Introduction to ___________
> Interoperability
> NeoGeography and NovelGeography
> Using a Software Stack
> 3D Worlds
> In the tradition of previous FOSS4G events, we expect that the  
> majority
> of workshops will be "hands on", with participants seated in front of
> computers and able to follow along with the instructor, working  
> directly
> with the software and applications under discussion.
> Be prepared to spend considerable effort in creating your workshop.
> Past experience has shown that a high quality workshop requires about
> three days of preparation for each hour of presentation time. As  
> part of
> this preparation you will be expected to develop material for  
> attendees
> to take away with them, such as handouts, a 'workbook', CDROM, etc.
> In recognition of this effort, workshop presenters will receive a
> reduction in the price of conference registration:
> free registration for delivering a half-day workshop
> half-price registration for delivering a 90-minute workshop
> Because of limited space, you may want to consider submitting two
> versions of your topic, one for each length format.
> Please visit the workshops page on our website to download the
> submission templates and instructions for sending them in:
> http://www.foss4g2007.org/workshops.html
> The deadline for workshop submissions is February 28, 2007. Submit
> early, submit often!
