> NeoGeography and NovelGeography
> Using a Software Stack
> 3D Worlds

> of workshops will be "hands on", with participants seated in front of
> computers and able to follow along with the instructor, working  
> directly
> with the software and applications under discussion.
> Be prepared to spend considerable effort in creating your workshop.
> Past experience has shown that a high quality workshop requires about
> three days of preparation for each hour of presentation time. As  
> part of
> this preparation you will be expected to develop material for  
> attendees
> to take away with them, such as handouts, a 'workbook', CDROM, etc.
> In recognition of this effort, workshop presenters will receive a
> reduction in the price of conference registration:
> free registration for delivering a half-day workshop
> half-price registration for delivering a 90-minute workshop
> Because of limited space, you may want to consider submitting two
> versions of your topic, one for each length format.
> Please visit the workshops page on our website to download the
> submission templates and instructions for sending them in:
> The deadline for workshop submissions is February 28, 2007. Submit
