Thought I would forward this along to you folks; we will probably have a few forms of distance participation capability if people are interested.

Topics of discussion we hope to open up include exploring the OpenGIS registry model concept of an ebXML registry to encompass "well-known" taxonomies of natural resource information, and the general topic of federation. 

In particular, we'd be extremely interested if people think there is a realistic prospect not only for data interchange, but perhaps down the road a few years, distributed, hierarchical modeling, that might structurally link in with national synoptic efforts using Globus/GRID or other appropriate technologies.

Subject:	[Tc] NRE WG call for agenda items

The April Technical Committee meeting is fast approaching.  Please let me know of any presentations you  may have, or items you'd like to  discuss at the Natural Resources and Environment WG meeting in Orléans.

Items on the docket so far include a vote on our updated charter, and 
news about OGC progress in the domain of Sustainable Development.

We will also be very interested in hearing about applications you've 
implemented using OGC technologies, or requirements you have for future 
work involving resource management, environmental monitoring, or 
ecological processes.

I look forward to hearing from you.
