I don't think that I've mentioned the e-Symposia in this blog before. I have in my general interest blog (on 22 July and 31 August).

The e-Symposia are fascinating, both from a content perspective and a delivery perspective. For the content of the next e-Symposium, see below. Regarding delivery, these are delivered over a web connection and are available to professionals all over the world. The e-Symposia people make money from sponsorships, the presenters get to hawk their wares, the virtual attendees learn a thing or two, and everyone is happy.

Here's the latest message from Val Genton:
