Hi everyone!

I was at TPDL 2012 and I liked the conference.
I'd like to propose a TPDL 2013 workshop "Practical Experiences with CIDOC CRM".
But I've never organized a workshop before, so I'd need your help.
Please provide some feedback: does this sound like a good venue and topic, would you be interested in co-organizing or participating, what topics it should cover...

Thanks in advance! Vladimir
