We have the great pleasure to announce that the 4th GDRI meeting will be held in Montpellier, France. The aim of this meeting will be to encourage interactions within and between WP participants by organizing sessions along cross-cutting themes (see proposal below) as well as short workshops. We expect around 40 participants. We have already scheduled one invited speaker, Brian Chase who will give a talk on past climate in Southern Africa.
To finalize the organization of the meeting, we will need you to answer several questions.
In a file sent by email, we have provided a choice of dates and timetables for the meeting as well as of sessions. If you plan to attend the meeting, we ask you to return the form before the 31 of December 2012. Please indicate:

Some details of the budget
As for previous meetings, the French organisers will cover fees for the accommodation, food, coffee breaks, airport shuttle of all delegates, as well as travel expenses for the French participants. The South-African budget will finance the travel expenses of the South-African delegates (for more information, please contact your WP coordinator or Conrad Matthee -email@example.com)
We very much look forward to hearing from you before the 31st of December
