Dear Sir/Madam,

It gives us, at CDAC, Mumbai, immense pleasure to inform you that CDAC, 
Mumbai is organising two workshops titled National Workshop on FOSS 
Desktop Accessibility and _*National Workshop on FOSS Adoption in 
Education*_ _during August 26-27, 2011_ as a part of National Resource 
Centre for Free & Open Source Software (NRCFOSS) Phase II initiative.

Similarly, NATIONAL WORKSHOP ON FOSS ADOPTION IN EDUCATION, on August 
27, 2011 is intended to explore the benefits, role, and developments of 
technology, specifically FOSS, in education. FOSS provides softwares 
that are free of cost, easily maintainable, community support, 
customization freedom, etc. Various FOSS tools in education will be 
demonstrated in the workshop. The participants will also get to 
experience the work of C-DAC Mumbai in promoting technology/ FOSS in 
education. The workshop will provide an opportunity to interact with 
participants from different organizations and industry practitioners.

NATIONAL WORKSHOP ON FOSS DESKTOP ACCESSIBILITY on August 26, 2011 will 
focus on exploring the current trends in the field of
accessibility particularly with regard to FOSS. As you may be aware a 
large section of the society comprising people with different kinds of 
disabilities finds it difficult to use ICT in the same way as normal
people do for fulfilling different purposes. It is very much required to 
provide such people with assistive technologies that make 
theirinteraction with computers more user-friendly and accessible. This 
workshop intends to serve as a platform to encourage the use of FOSS 
tools and techniques in creating assistive technologies that are 
free-of- cost, available to all, easily maintainable etc. for such a
large portion of population in a country like India. The workshop will 
also like to leverage the experiences of all stakeholders to identify 
and address the issues in those areas of accessibility that are still 
untouched.

The workshop will involve keynote and invited lectures by distinguished 
researchers and/or professionals. We take this opportunity to extend you 
an invitation for participation in these workshops. Looking forward to 
see you or your representative at the event. Please find attached 
registration form and workshop brochures.
