Betreff: [OSM-talk] Workshop "Crowd Sourcing for Updating National

Right now I was pointed to this event
English invitation (from the same site): http://tinyurl.com/n7em9m

Among others Google participates, OSM not. Didn't "OSM" know about this
event or is participation undesirable? If the ladder is not the case, could
OSM still take part this year (not as attendand, but as tutor or such)? If
not this year, then in the coming or at the next event?

More details:

No participation fee, the language of the workshop is English.

Translation of the page: 
| From 20. to 21. August 2009 swisstopo with EuroSDR organizes the first 
| EuroSDR Workshop to the subject "Crowd Sourcing for Updating National 
| Databases" in Wabern. With the background of new technologies at the 
| web, especially collaboration via Internet, current aspects of user 
| generated mapcontent and datasets and its usage for datatracing will 
| be discussed.

malenki, hoping the translation isn't too bad :)
