Hi List,

Last year, I believe our SignWriting Symposium 2014 was a tremendous 
success.  It is a great resource I enjoy referencing.

I hope we can have another symposium in 2015.  Even though Val hasn't 
formally announced the next symposium, I would invite everyone in the 
SignWriting family to think about ideas for papers, videos, or 
presentations to tell us more about their work.

I do not believe we will have the 40 hours of live broadcasting again, 
but something more reasonable live 20 hours should be feasible.   Every 
presenter will have their own presentation page with links to their 
papers, videos, and presentation material.  If we have too many 
presentations for the live broadcast, some presenters will need to send 
prepared videos of their presentation, which Val will announce during 
the symposium with links to the source material.

I really enjoyed learning about everyone's work during our last 
symposium.  I look forward to another chance this year to learn even more.

This year, I am planning 2 presentations.  The first is aimed at a 
general audience and will highlight the new SignText that is currently 
under development, along with the supporting fonts, tools, and 
standards.  The second is aimed at power users and will cover the data 
formats and how to write advanced search queries by hand.
