The DLM Forum Executive Committee are delighted to announce the programme for the DLM Forum Members Meeting taking place in Lisbon, Portugal, 22nd and 23rd November 2007, and kindly hosted by the National Archives of Portugal.
The programme is still subject to change, as confirmations are drawn together.
Registration for the meeting is now closed, if you are a DLM Member, and need special consideration for attendance, please drop Georgina an email, email@example.com . The registration numbers are now reaching capacity.
I'd just like to recap on the routine for submitting comments on MoREQ2 for the avoidance of doubt. If you are a DLM member not on the review group, please ensure you send comments using the form provided by Cornwell at www.moreq.2.eu and reviewer code UF21. This is to ensure Cornwell get them as quickly as possible for consideration in the drafting process.
If you also wish to copy in the Review Group, please do this to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is not essential; you may wish to use it for what you see as very significant comments or if for some reason you wished an anonymous comment to be made [we are not sure in what circumstances this might arise]. A separate email about the handling of review group comments will be sent to members of the review group later.
