>WHY THIS CONFERENCE?
>
>The aim of the Conference is to  facilitate the timely and coherent
>development of the Global Information Society/Global Information
>Infrastructure (GIS/GII) by identifying and promoting the resolution of
>outstanding standardization issues. The first steps towards a GIS/GII
>have already been taken and an opportunity now exists to assess actual
>applications and to pinpoint the factors contributing to their success.
>This major global conference is intended to follow-up on the
>identification/recognition by G7 Ministers in February, 1995 of the
>importance of promoting interoperability to futher develop the GIS/GII.
>
>The Conference is market focused and its objective is to offer an Open
>Forum for the essential market players (users, system suppliers, network
>service providers, information service providers, content providers,
>standards related bodies, regulators,  public policy makers) to :
>
>- exchange views regarding actual and potential applications along with
>related practical experience;
>
>- identify factors leading to the successful and fast implementation of
>selected applications, and the business opportunities that these will
>offer;
>
>- investigate the standards (voluntary and mandatory) and related
>technical regulations that are needed to shape the implementation of
>GIS/GII, so that it may realize its full potential in the global
>environment;
>
>- share perspectives on the appropriate timing of the implementation of
>applications to meet GIS/GII needs.
>
>The Conference will provide an opportunity:
>
>- to gain a better understanding of the status of G7, national and
>transnational GIS/GII projects,
>
>- to share experiences about implementation successes and failures,
>
>- to learn how timely standards helped resolve difficulties and
>impediments in developing new markets, new products and new applications
>through the promotion of global interoperability and functionality,
>
>- to explore new ways to facilitate development of new
>products/markets/applications by getting, for example, the right
>standards at the right time, and to identify and promote methods for
>achieving global functionality and interoperability.
>
>The Conference will contribute a renewed motivation for action and a
>vision for how to successfully realize new business opportunities and
>the global implementation of GIS/GII.  The conference will promote
>opportunities by referring its results, including perspectives for the
>future and key issues, to the appropriate organizations, rather than
>attempting to determine solutions per se. This approach should permit
>more time for identification of opportunities and discussion of views on
>how further progress in achieving the GIS/GII can be realized. Through
>a wide diffusion of results, the Conference will provide a clear
>awareness of issues and solutions experienced.
>
>
>HOW IS IT STRUCTURED?
>
>The conference intends to provide a clear awareness of the issues and
>experience in standards development in order to promote progressive
>action throughout the industry.
>
>Four major themes will be addressed in workshops during the event:
>
>- Electronic commerce - topics such as banking, financial services,
>teleshopping and trade.
>
>- Services to the public - for example, service information, libraries,
>museums, remote provision of welfare services, education, telemedicine
>and intelligent transportation telematics  systems.
>
>- Individual use - services including interactive entertainment,
>telelearning and the provision of information and communications.
>
>- Communications infrastructure interoperability (a  horizontal  topic).
>
>The programme is being developed to ensure the greatest opportunity for
>creative discussion.  The sessions on the first and last days will be
>plenaries in which the status of existing Global Information Society
>projects will be reviewed, and the potential for consensus-based
>standardization and public policy initiatives for the enhancement of
>Global Information Society development processes will be discussed.
>
>The second day will be devoted to four workshops, run in parallel, to
>explore the four major themes.  The workshops will provide the
>opportunity to discuss widely-recognized Global Information Society
>needs, such as security, encryption, privacy, multilingualism support,
>user interface, and practical interactive communications which are made
>possible by interoperability, in specific applications of relevance both
>to business and to the citizen. The results of the thematic workshops
>will be summarized and presented for discussion to all the conference
>delegates in the plenary session on the last day of the Conference.
>
>
>WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
>
>With its clear focus on market developments and business opportunities,
>the Conference is an essential forum for CEOs, senior managers and
>business leaders from:
>
>- Users: Information infrastructures and services users: small, medium
>and large enterprises, central and local governments, individual user
>groups and local communities, etc
>
>- Suppliers/Developers: Major standards developers, suppliers involved
>in global standardization programmes, GIS application developers,
>information content providers, service providers, Internet providers,
>business circles, trade/industry associations, financial institutions,

>public policy and/or standardization:  Standards development
>organisations (including international, regional and national partners),
>Governmental agencies, public policy makers, Government officials
>involved in standardization and technical regulations affecting GIS/GII.
>
>The aim is to achieve a carefully-balanced audience, ensuring that all
>major players are represented, from all regions of the world, both

>standardization organisations, service providers and academics.
>
