Hi Hector,

Thank you for your interest in the Greenstone workshops. We (the NZDL
project)
haven't actually had much to do with the workshops run up until now -- they
have been organised and funded by UNESCO (we don't have the resources to do
them on our own). Although three people from the NZDL project will be
running
the upcoming workshop in Fiji in November, other workshops have been run by
staff from the National Centre for Science Information, Indian Institute of
Science, Bangalore, India.

Since UNESCO is organising and funding the upcoming workshop, they control
who
is attending it (and there are limited places, unfortunately). I can only
suggest that you get in contact with your national UNESCO office and express
an
interest in attending the workshop.

Good luck,

Michael
