Anyone planning on going to GSDI-10?  I'm pretty confident we could get 
a workshop there.  I didn't go last year, but had a group of people who 
were going to go, so we organized it together.  There's a lot of 
government decision makers who go to this, it may not be a bad place to 
have some osgeo presence.  It's just way too far away for me to know if 
I'll personally be attending.

Dear Chris,

GSDI 10 will be held in Trinidad 25-29 February 2008. See

We are once again inviting proposals for the presentation of workshops
on the first day of the conference. See

Workshops this time will be offered under a slightly different
arrangement that we hope will attract strong attendance. We are
requesting workshop proposals by the end of this month so that people
registering for the conference will be able to sign up for specific
workshops in advance. In this manner instructors will know the number of
people attending their workshops and have the contact information for
their participants in advance.

We highly encourage you to submit a workshop proposal. For reference,
the description of the workshop you presented in Santiago in 2006 may be
found at http://www.gsdi.org/gsdiconf/gsdi9/english/09_Act_Work_Sched.htm.
Submit your proposal on or before 1 June 2007 to onsrud at gsdi.org with a
copy to astevens at gsdi.org. If you submit, you should have a decision by
the evaluation committee in early June.

We look forward to hearing from you.
