MEDNET '99 (fwd)
We have been contacted from another event. This one deals with medical
stuff. There are various implied and direct confusions about how Debian
works therefore I'm also sending this to debian-publicity.
Btw, yes I have added the Paris Linux Expo.

To Debina GNU/Linux
We will be presenting a tutorial on "Learning HTML in Heidelberg:
Effective Web Page Designs for Medical Professionals:
Understanding HTML enough to Try it Yourself!" on September 18, 1999, at
the fourth annual MEDNET '99 World Congress on the Internet in Medicine.
As part of the presentation we will be including the resources that we
found to be helpful in creating our own website, running our computers,
and the tutorial presentation.Cole is an avid proponent of Linux
products finding them to be a good, reliable computer resources.
Recognizing that many of the participants will be from other countries
who cannot afford the expensive licensing fees charged by other software
companies, we are also striving to provide resources that will be
inexpensive and sustainable, hence Linux-based products. With Debian
providing many being part of the free, open source systems and free
software, we felt it would make sense for your company to be
represented. Also with the international representation at MEDNET '99,
this is a good way to be able to reach physicians and computer people in
other countries, providing them valuable information and resources to
get connected to the Internet.
MEDNET 99 is the Fourth Annual World Congress on the Internet in
Medicine, an international conference of the Society for
the Internet in Medicine (SIM). This organization is one of the leading
international medical organizations devoted to the use of
the Internet in the field of medicine. The MEDNET 99 Organizing
Committee anticipates several hundred physicians,
researchers, developers and users, involved in the application of the
Internet in medicine, from around the world to attend this
