Alfonso Gumucio -- coordinator of the International Committee for OurMedia -- writes to inform about the their upcoming conference to take place on October 4-9, 2010. Please read below for details:
"Dear colleagues from the OurMedia network all over the world (and those who may join soon), this short message is to confirm that the next OurMedia 9 Conference will take place in Pakistan, on 4-9 October 2010, please block that week in your agendas because you don’t want to miss it."
"The Center for Rural Development Communication, at the University of Sindh, in Southern Pakistan near Karachi, has offered to host the OM9 Conference. This university is known to be a multicultural environment in a fairly safe and calm region of the country."
"We will issue a complete Call for Proposals in about two weeks. Right now, we have set up an International Committee, and our colleagues at the University of Sindh have created a Local Committee to take ahead the various tasks inherent to the organization procedures."
"The general theme and methodology is been discussed by a sub-group made of colleagues from both committees, and you will soon receive information about it in the CfP."
"We have created an email account specifically for this conference, ourmedia9[at]gmail.com, however you do need to include it in your contact list, to prevent the messages to land directly in your bin or spam folder."
