As I am near to Delhi, I would like to attend this Conference. Being a
scientist from Agricultural Sciences, I would like to talk on behalf of
Open Data in Agricultural Sciences.
I hope many who are in this list from India would also be interested to
attend the conference.
Any joint proposals?? count me in...
Thanks & Regards
