SURFnet <http://www.surfnet.nl/en/>is happy to announce the
'Edu-Socializing Seminar', to be held in Utrecht, the Netherlands, on
June 12th and 13th.

Gadget and widget technology [1
<http://edu-socializing.wikispaces.com/home#1>], [2
<http://edu-socializing.wikispaces.com/home#2>] is gaining momentum in
the Research and Educational community. Projects like the Role Project
<http://www.role-project.eu/>, Apache Rave <http://rave.apache.org/>,
Sakai OAE <http://sakaiproject.org/node/2239> and OpenConext
<http://www.openconext.org> implement and deploy these technologies,
showcasing the possibilities and benefits of such loosely coupled and
distributed environments. The projects address a wide variety of needs
from within the community like, among others, personalized learning
environments, mashing web and social content, distributed learning and
online collaborations.

The event seeks to explore trends and foster these developments
internationally, by bringing together experts from different fields into
one event and joining them in a community. With interactive sessions the
workshop wants to enable sharing of ideas and knowledge. At the same
time the event wants to trigger new developments. With dedicated
breakout sessions, common challenges can be addressed and solutions can
be targeted.

If you are working within this area and would like to participate by
presenting or challenging the other attendees, we welcome you
contributions to the event. We kindly ask you to fill this out in the
registration form
