EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
Broadband Gap 2007
14 May 2007 - 15 May 2007  Brussels, BelgiumThe Information Society
offers enormous benefits to Europe's less developed regions and rural
and isolated areas, yet commercial investment in broadband
infrastructure for these areas is problematic. Launched by four European
Commissioners, this Conference and Exhibition will investigate how the
strategic use of ICT can support regional and local development, ease
infrastructure and geographical handicaps and make these areas more
attractive to business and individuals alike.

EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
Social and Economic Benefits of Inclusive Technology
23 October 2007 - 25 October 2007  Inverurie,  United KingdomMainstream
technology is quite able to encompass the functionalities which are
currently provided by a few specialist manufacturers, not only for
disabled people but also the growing aged population. The vast majority
of the population could also find such functionalities useful.  This
conference will discuss these issues and produce outcomes indicating the
profitability to mainstream suppliers and the National Economy. It will
also indicate lines of research to increase people's abilities, giving
freedom of choice and decreasing the burden on carers. 
The objective of the conference is to produce a White Paper,
demonstrating the social and economic benefits of inclusive technology
to the Government and the IT Industry. The event is organised by the
British Computer Society.
