Preparations for Framework Programme VI

New Information Technologies and their uses will be highlighted at e-2001 (the eBusiness and eWork Conference) which takes place later this year in Venice. The conference will examine European progress with the Information Society and, this year, provides an introduction and preparation for the European Commission's forthcoming support under Framework Programme Six. The e-2001 conference is aimed at those wanting to learn about the latest developments, exchange information and experiences and make contacts for research or commercial gain.

The scope of e-2001 is the New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce initiative, which is part of the European Commission's Information Society Technologies programme. It will show how emerging digital technologies in e-work, e-business and e-commerce are generating exciting research opportunities and new business ideas.

Keynote speakers from Canon, IBM, Cisco Systems, Buyonet and Telecom Italia will discuss the impact of future digital technologies, market forces and business strategies. Plenary speakers from the European Parliament and the European Commission will comment on legislation and policy issues. Parallel technical sessions will describe enabling technologies; highlighting results and industrial potential. Apart from the conference sessions, the three day programme also has an exhibition.

The accompanying exhibition will cover research projects, books, software and services. Demonstrations and posters will focus on the potential industrial benefits. A match-making service project will assist with the location of partners for project proposals, future research activities or marketing arrangements. There will be special facilities for small business contacts.
