PhilGEOS 2012 [1] is the 1st symposium on Geomatics in the
Philippines. It is envisioned to be a major gathering of educators,

I am writing (shouting) to invite everyone (who is currently based in
the Philippines) to join and participate. We have an initial list of
topics [2], some of them do not have a lead facilitator for now. If
you are interested to lead the workshop please send me a message or
join the discussion in our local mailinglist [3].
