Prague is venue for discussions on Internet challenges

European experts are preparing to discuss the challenges of Internet technologies in a conference that is being held for the first time in a Candidate Country for European Union membership. The Final Edition of the programme for e2002 (eBusiness and eWork) conference shows over 200 presentations being given over the three days starting 16 October in Prague.

This event, the third in an Annual Series, has familiar reminders of previous successful meetings: eight parallel streams, project demonstrations, posters and a full social programme. Topics covered in the parallel sessions include Mobility, Knowledge Management, Extended Services and Products, Supply Chain Management, Industrial Applications, Networked Organisations and Trust, Security and Legal issues. Sessions are in three formats: presentation, discussion and workshop and all the papers appear, in full text, in the two-volume conference book. A brokerage service will help with making contacts for information exchange, marketing or making project proposals.

Rosalie Zobel, European Commission Director responsible for Key Action II (New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce) of the IST programme, will chair the two opening plenary sessions. She will be introducing keynote presentations by Sergio Giacoletto, Executive Vice President Oracle; Steve Leonard, President EDS; Simon Breakwell, Managing Director Expedia Inc.; Jeet Khaira, Chief Executive Video Arts; and Geoff Sutton, Director

A special plenary session at the end of the conference will examine eBusiness and eWork in Framework Programme Six, which is due to be launched towards the end of 2002.

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).
