With a few weeks to go, we would like to remind you the BELIEF and 6CHOICE consortia are organising a joint symposium, supported by the GLOBAL and 6DEPLOY projects.

The symposium will take place at the Habitat Centre in New Delhi on the 28th-29th of January 2009 and  will address the theme of Distance Learning as an e-Infrastructures application.

The event will provide a valuable platform to foster networking and support discussions on e-Infrastructure for Distance Learning which has become one of the top priorities not only of the Indian Government, but of the whole global Learning Society.

The scope of the symposium is to understand, together with researchers, developers, users and policy makers, how European and Indian e-Infrastructure links can evolve.

Representatives from the Secretary of State for Education, EC Delegation to India and from the Ministry for Communications will open and attend the symposium.

Topics discussed include, but are not limited to:

    * Grid Computing
    * Wireless Networks for distance education
    * Content creation for Distance Learning (Health, Education, Science & Technology, Bio informatics, Agriculture, etc.)
    * Security, management and dissemination of content for distance learning
    * Distance education infrastructure
