2ndEuroSDR Workshop onthe Preservation of the Geographic Production Process

 The next meetingof the EuroSDRworking group is planned for Monday afternoon December 1standTuesday morning December 2nd at GhentUniversity (Belgium). Itwill be followed immediately by the meeting of theInternational CartographicAssociation (ICA) commission on Map Production at GhentUniversity(Tuesday/Wednesday) and the ICA commission on the History ofCartography(Thursday/Friday), both addressing the influence of war on(the evolution of)map production technology,  and the Brussels Map Circleinternationalconference on Saturday (Mapping in times of War) (http://geoweb.ugent.be/histocarto2014/).


By clusteringthese meetings in oneweek, we aim to make it more efficient for interestedparties to join allevents in one week, and as such to draw more participants toall events (moretime efficient, reduced travelling costs, 
) and as such toinvoke cross-breedbetween the different working groups. The EuroSDR workinggroup will focus moreon the organizational aspects (future), on a framework forfuture cooperation,and will leave the more ‘detailed’ practical examples ofpreservation projectsto the meetings later that week.


It is thereforethat we would liketo invite you to our 2nd EuroSDR Workshop onMonday 1stof December (from 11:00 onwards*) and finishing in themorning of Tuesday 2ndDecember. We foreseethat the outcomesof our discussions can be integrated in the program of thefollowing ICAsymposium, to get by this channel also a wider audience.
