Significant Industrial Support for the e-2001 Conference

Telecom Italia, along with other leading European IT organisations and companies have already indicated support for e-2001 which takes place later this year in Italy. The Announcement and Call for Papers, which has just been issued, shows that the Conference has again attracted strong support from industry.

The primary conference sponsor is the European Commission's Information Society Technologies (IST) programme, Key Action II, New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce. This year's major sponsor is Telecom Italia, who are providing their Future Centre in Venice as the venue.

The Call for technical papers shows that several strategic plenary speakers are already known with Canon, Compaq, Cisco, IBM, Buyonet and Telecom Italia presenting keynote papers. Abstracts for the technical papers, to be given in six parallel streams, have to be submitted before the end of February. Successful authors will have their papers published in the Conference book.

The Conference takes place from 17-19 October and apart from the Sessions there is an exhibition of IST technology and a number of social activities that help the exchange of information and the making of contacts for research or business collaboration. Over 500 delegates, from all over the world, being attracted to last year's e-2000 in Madrid.

E-2001 is one of the European Commission's most important Conferences for advanced Internet-related Technologies. The Conference and Exhibition demonstrate the latest European initiatives in this exciting and economically vital area.

The programme committee is seeking papers that lie within the scope of e-business and e-work from leading-edge researchers so e-2001 will give an early indication of enabling technologies and their industrial applications.
