Dear All,

as correspondent author for the workshop proposal [1], I received an email
from the INSPIRE Conference Organisers. Unfortunately, due to time and
space limitations, it is possible for them to only choose a small number of
the submitted workshops to appear in the programme. Therefore their request
was to combine, if possible, our workshop with the one submitted by Simone
Giannecchini and Tobia Di Pisa:

"Hands-on Introduction to create mash-ups for INSPIRE Services with

Simone was in cc in this email.
I just had a Skype talk with Simone, and we individuated a couple of
possible scenarios:

1) Withdraw one of the two workshops; or
2) Split the 90 minutes at our disposal in two.

Of course this decision is up to all the co-authors. In case we decide for
the second solution, Simone kindly offered to shrink his time to 30
minutes, in order to allow the round table to take place in 60 minutes

Another request from the committee was to delineate a new title for the
workshop, and the proposal would be something like:

"Ping-Pong match: OSGeo & INSPIRE (with a practical intro to using MapStore
for INSPIRE Services mashups)"

Of course also this is open to discussion.

Please let me know ASAP your reaction.

Thank you and best regards,
