Hello Kathleen and Everyone!
SignWriting was an active part of the first workshop:

Sign Language Processing Workshop, Lisbon, May 30, 2004

If you go to the above web page you will see photos and papers from  
programmers from all over the world. Quite a number of programs  
presented in 2004 included SignWriting. Some were from Belgium. Bart  
Braem and Steven Aerts, who programmed the Flemish Sign Language  
Dictionary, presented there, as did Dr. Antonio Carlos da Rocha Costa  
from Brazil, and Richard Gleaves, who developed SignWriter DOS...

One of the presenters was Chiara from Italy, and it was Chiara who  
wrote to me to announce this new I would suggest  
writing to
