Hello all,

I apologize for cross posting this to several email lists, but I wanted
to make sure you all know about this event.

As many of you know, over the last several years we have been holding a
national distributed seminar series that spans Canada. We naturally call
it the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) Seminar Series. We have been holding the
seminar series since September 2005.

On April 24/25, 2009 we are holding a retreat to discuss our experiences
in holding this seminar series. The theme of the retreat is: "Remote
Collaboration: Coast-To-Coast Experience & Future Directions"

We welcome any and all parties that are interested in discussions around
the support of remote, collaborative events in the scientific context.
