Dear all -

I hope that we will see some or all of you at the 1st Workshop on Friend of a
Friend, Social Networking and the (Semantic)www-rdf-interest@w3.org Web in
Galway [1] this September.  If you need any details regarding travel or
accommodation, you can visit the local issues page [2], or e-mail myself or Ina

I would like to remind you that registration for the workshop is FREE (the
conference dinner is €42 which should be paid in advance if attending), and you
can register here:


We have extended the registration deadline by a few days, but we would ask that
you try and register for the workshop (and pay for dinner if attending the
event) before *Monday, 16 August 2004* to allow us to have accurate numbers.
Going on current registrations, we expect to have around 100 attendees.

Galway is Ireland's (and Europe's) most westernmost city, located on the
Atlantic Ocean.  The workshop will be held in the National University of
Ireland, Galway [3], founded in 1849.  Nearby is scenic Connemara, where Gaelic
(Irish) is still spoken, and the Burren, famous for its rare flora and fauna.
Our workshop logo is derived from Galway's Claddagh ring, a symbol of
friendship, love and loyalty.

Looking forward to the workshop!

Best regards,

P.S. There's also an oyster festival being held in Clarenbridge [4] (just
outside Galway) from 3rd to 5th September, so if oysters and Guinness are your
thing, you might want to stay on a few days.

"Straddling the River Corrib on the country's west coast, Galway exudes a
youthful liberalism rarely found in Ireland. Galway's own large population of
college students is bolstered by the influx of young adults from across Ireland
(and many from mainland Europe) who are attracted by the music, the theater and
the lively pubs. But travelers of any age will enjoy the city's compact,
walkable downtown -- it's a delightful jumble of narrow streets and medieval
buildings that recalls Galway's long history. Filled with restaurants and pubs,
the city center is the best place to experience Galway's nightlife."
