Hi all

For the interest of Australian list members (and others) - Call for 
Presentations and Case Studies at "Meta 2011 - Business Realities and 
Implications". I'll only post this call twice (once more towards the end 
date for submissions as a reminder) so please don't consider it spam.

Don't let the name fool you - realistically we're after presentations 
and case studies on any real and practical metadata implementations, 
especially in the Gov space but with an eye for the commercial market 
too (LOD and SemWeb guys - I'm looking at you here ;) ). Even a group 
offering from the W3 community would be awesome, and IG hat on for a 
second, a great way to push some E&O as always.

If you've got something to share, or a great project you'd like to 
showcase, let us know! I have every faith that the W3 e-Gov, LOD and 
SemWeb IG and WG crowds will come through with some great offerings. And 
we don't mind if you are international - we'll be able to post case 
studies online, and will have a tweet-up and live blog happening as well 
- anything to spread the sweet eGov open data and web 3.0 word.

Please pass on to any you may think would be intersted!

Happy to answer any questions off list, or point you to the right people 
to talk to.
