The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament wishes to to send delegates to attend the International Conference and Workshops on Community Based Environments scheduled to hold in Vienna, Austria from 25-28 April 2007 and would therefore need more information on the event as well as the necessary information we are supposed to supply you for the issuance of formal letters of invitation to enable our delegates process their traveling documents to attend the event as scheduled.
Please note that our request for letters of invitation does not in any way constitute a request for financial assistance from you, as all expenses will be taken care of by the parliament.
Thanking you in anticipation of a most favorable response.
Best regards,
Dr. Umoh Sunny

I'd just like to say thank you, and well done to the organisers for such a good event. Well done!

It was great to get to meet so many of the names that we see on-line, and to be able to put faces to names.

Looking forward to next year already!

Thanks a bunch for the wonderful time and the great pictures taken. I was wondering if we should install photo-album on for uploading pictures taken during OpenACS / .LRN events ?

Is photo-album the approved package? I wondered what had been deprecated.
Hi all,

it was nice to meet you in Vienna.

For those who could not come (or were interested in the presentations on Educational Standards and Accessibility), I have uploaded the slides and papers from the corresponding Workshops:
-Workshop on Experiences on Accessible eLearning Platforms
-Workshop on Educational Standards and Methodologies support in dotLRN

corresponding to Friday's Track A: E-Learning Technologies.


Hi Gustaf,

the link to the Vienna conference posted in the previous message ( seems not to be working. Are the conference information and proceedings available somewhere else from the 2007 edition at Vienna?



The website was running on a VM which was completely destroyed. One can get the content from the Wayback archive at:

hope this helps

Ok, Gustaf. Thanks for the clarification.
