The World Federation of the Deaf will be hosting their 15th World Congress in July 2007, Madrid.

Logo of the congress

The World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) is an international non-governmental organisation comprising national associations of Deaf people. It watches over the interests of more than 74 million Deaf people worldwide -more than 80% of them live in developing countries. The WFD was founded in 1951, during the First World Congress of the WFD, held in Rome. Such an early date makes the WFD one of the oldest international disability organisations in the world. Currently, the WFD has a membership of 127 national associations from the five continents.

Here is a very nice video with avatars signing what I think is LSE (Lengua de signos o señas española, or Spanish Sign Language). Whoever made these animations did a very good job. Both manual and non-manual features are synthesized quite nicely. The message is about the (apparently succesfull) Spanish candidacy for the 2007 congress.
