Hi GeoNetwork listers,
The program committee for the 2009 North Carolina GIS Conference is
trying to finalize its presentation lineup, and we have a track for
which we are in search of a talk on metadata catalog applications.
Geonetwork immediately came to mind as something we'd like to expose our
GIS community to, but I've not had success with schedules aligning for
the couple of people I knew of working with GeoNetwork. The ESRI Federal
User Conference in DC chose the same conference dates we had already
selected, and this unfortunate choice is wreaking some havoc on us with
a number of potential speakers...
So, I thought I'd put this opportunity out on the listserv to see if
there is anyone out there within driving distance of Raleigh, NC who has
an instance of GeoNetwork in production operation (or a GeoNetwork
developer) who would like to come visit us and give a talk at the NC GIS
Conference on Feb 19/20, 2009.
Unfortunately, we're pretty much an all-volunteer conference, so there's
no budget to pay for airline tickets - but there is also no conference
registration fees for speakers. We expect to have somewhere in the
neighborhood of 800 people.

Please email me directly and cc Jun Wu at the NC Department of
Transportation ( jwu at ncdot dot gov ) at your earliest convenience, if
you are interested.
Thanks in advance,
GIS Coordinator, NC Dept. Environment & Natural Resources
