CALL FOR PROPOSALS TO HOST GREC 2007
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

ICDAR'2007, as you undoubtedly know, will be organized in Curitiba (Brazil). GREC Workshop is traditionally held just before or after ICDAR and hosted by some institution located in the same country than ICDAR or in a close geographic area. It facilitates the attendance of people wishing to attend to both events. Therefore, proposals for hosting GREC'2007 in such countries are strongly encouraged. Desirable hosts should be nearer than 2hrs flight distance to Curitiba.
Please contact the TC10 chair for details.
