Thanks for posting this to the list, Maria. To make a long story short,
I've just booked my tickets to Malta, so as long as that volcano in
Iceland behaves itself, we are on our way! I'm not making any
presentations or posters, but just hoping to learn as much as I can,
and to have a mini family holiday as my wife and daughter are coming
too! Anyone recommend a good hotel?
The topic of the workshop sounds fascinating and I'll be looking for
inspiration. I'm working on a Sign language dictionary application for
SIL in which we are using SignWriting as a way for notating signs and
for searching for signs. A lot to do yet, but hopefully we will have
something soon for testing. I'll just leave a little 'teaser' behind
here before I finish...
p.s. Yes, the photos are of myself and my wife. We are not part of the
software, but I thought I'd use this photo to introduce ourselves and
to protect the innocent... ; -)

Shane Gilchrist has brought this workshop to our attention - 'The Fourth
Workshop on the Representation and Processing of Sign Languages: Corpora
and Sign Language Technologies'
It's actually happening in Malta.
Sorry I didn't know about this earlier, but in case anyone is interested
there is still a little time left to present an abstract. I'm not sure I'm
going to make it on time, but will try to see if I can get something
together to show how SignWriting/SignPuddle has been of great linguistic
benefit to our projects here.

Many thanks Shane for bringing this to our attention.
Bye for now
