Wonderful, Charles. Good luck with forming a US organizing committee!  
Keep us informed...

Other countries use SignWriting more than we do in the United States,  
so encouraging people from the United States to participate would be  

Of course there is always interest from other countries to enjoy  
visiting Gallaudet and attending the SW Symposium while they are in  
Washington DC anyway, but I hope some US people will attend  
is hard to get US people to even look at SignWriting because it is  
from their own country...and that is not as glamorous as something  
from another country...that is just human nature ;-)

Val ;-)
