Dr.Suchith Anand, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom wrote to us about the live webcasting and podcasting initiative for the Geospatial Web Services workshop at Centre for Geospatial Science, University of Nottingham that took place from June 16-17th,2008.
According to Dr.Suchit, there was excellent response from the GIS community for this initiative as evident from the web stats on June 16th and June 17th. More than 300 viewers watched the workshop online on both days, which he says is really remarkable, especially for a specialist workshop like this.
He adds "I thought to share this information with you as i believe technologies like webcasting and podcasting will help in widening participation of GIS research conferences and events for the benefit of the society at large". I would totally agree up on this, and I request our readers to share such kind of information with us, to further propagate your message - through this blog.
All the workshop presentations have been archived for the benefit of the wider GIS community. You will require either Windows Media Player or Real Player to watch the talks from the Workshop TAB of the website. Currently the Firefox browser is not supported.

Network of Young Researchers in GISc
The young researcher forum for Geographic Information Science aims to help participants of the GI-Days 2007 and other young researchers in field to stay in contact. The forums can be used to discuss current trends in GIScience, to get in contact with other researchers in the field, and to discuss problems and ideas regarding your ongoing (PhD) projects.
