In General

The IDN Workshop II will be a follow-up on the previous workshop held on 21 July 2004 in

addressed the basic issues necessary for a better understanding of the IDN topic. 
Participants to the IDN Workshop II, in Cape Town, are recommended to review the 
material presented in this tutorial, as such comprehensive level of introduction 
to IDN issues will not be part of the IDN Workshop II.
