Dear colleagues
 
a number of individuals have suggested panels/speakers t the next MEccsa conference, on policy issues,especialy considering the very eventful few months we've had in the media policy arena.
 
Could you let me know if anyone is still interested in putting together a panel, and what the topic and lineup might be?
 
Also a reminder of our proposed meeting at LSE on Sept 22nd, from 6-8. Thanks to those who've responded already.
 
thanks
 
Maire
