e2002 Kicks Off European Commission's Autumn Conference Season

The European Commission's autumn conference season kicks off this October with the eBusiness and eWork 2002 (e2002) conference, which is being held in Prague on 16-18 October 2002. This conference deals with eBusiness related matters. Topics covered include mobility, eGovernment, Internet applications in the public sector, media and entertainment, technologies, standards, and the eEurope 2005 action plan. Funding opportunities for eBusiness related research within the forthcoming Framework Programme Six will also be discussed.

Two weeks after the e2002 conference, the IST 2002 event will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, 4-6 November. IST 2002 is the conference for the whole of the IST Programme. The conference will provide a platform for debating the strategic research priorities for technologies addressing the information and communication sector. Included in these are a wide range of Internet related technologies.

Following on from IST 2002, the European Commission will hold a major conference entitled The European Research Area and the Framework Programme, to mark the launch of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme for research. The conference will be held in Brussels, 11-13 November and is expected to attract several thousand participants and offer opportunities for scientific debate and exchange of best practice beyond those subjects addressed in the Framework Programme.

The eBusiness and eWork events are the conferences for RTD projects in Key Action II of the IST Programme. Key Action II of the IST Programme is also the primary sponsor of the eBusiness and eWork conference series. The major sponsors of e2002 are Canon Europe, InternetOnline, and the Technology Centre (Czech Republic).
