Thanks for the clarification. This will be an awesome event in any case. Are there plans for video streaming or recording for later webcast?

A video of this workshop does seem like it would be an invaluable addition to the resources.

Dear Jim,

thanks for your interest in the CRM workshop at TPDL2015. However, I must clarify that it is *about* the CRM and not *by* the CRM (SIG).

It took many weeks, but my official membership card and welcome pack arrived yesterday. As election results of my proposed membership into the #cidocCRM SIG. I will be very pleased if I have the opportunity to say that I am a #cidocCRM SIG member.)

It would be a shame for this information to be presented only to those in attendance at the workshop, then lost to the “back burner” of expensive academic press access.

No expensive academic press. All accepted papers will be published online on a few days before (or, perhaps, after) the workshop. Then, possibly, a revised version will be published on journals.

Sure, but we must check with the local organizers if this is acceptable/feasible. I am confident it will be acceptable, not so much it will be feasible. In any case we can record the workshop and broadcast it on youtube - I don’t know if it will get many likes :)

> For my part to help make this webcast/recording possible, I would be happy to work with any “boots on the ground” folk who may be planning to attend the workshop. I’d do whatever I can to assist in preparing for,promoting, and delivering this proposed webcast/recording. (A Google Hangout on the Air, for example, might be a good way to deliver the live stream while it transparently records the sessions for YouTube-based post-workshop viewing.)

Thanks, we’ll keep you posted.
