[Ala-portal] Proposed workshop in Canberra - July 2014

Hi all,

At this stage, it is a bit difficult for me to justify flying to
Canberra, since costs are pretty high from Europe and basing our
national portal on ALA is not decided yet. But I'd probably be present
if a closer workshop (such as something a TDWG if in Europe) takes place.
