Dear Colleagues,

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has the pleasure to  
inform you that the GeoNetwork opensource third annual workshop will  
be held from 5 to 9 November 2007 at FAO Headquarters, Rome, Italy.

This year we hope to welcome 80-100 participants from several UN  
Agencies as well as from the GeoNetwork opensource community.

During the week we have time slots scheduled for half-day to one-day  
technical sessions on Open Source Web-Mapping and Desktop GIS  
Applications. We strongly encourage workshop submissions on  
interoperability and spatial data infrastructures based. Workshops  
from (OSGeo) Free and Open Source Software projects will receive  
preference in the selection process.

Each session should consist of a brief presentation of the software's  
functionality as well as a practical hands-on part targeted to GIS  

If you are interested in presenting your project in a technical  
session at the workshop, please provide us with a short session  
proposal until 19 September.

The workshops will be free for participants and workshop presenters.

We look forward to seeing you in Rome as a workshop presenter.
