> Subject: Workshop on 'Virtuality: the social impacts of virtual
> Some time ago the Academia Europaea announced a small targeted workshop on
> 'Virtuality: the social impacts of virtual information'. I confirm that
> the workshop will be taking at place at the Istituto Veneto di Scienze,
> Lettere ed Arti, Venice ( see http://www.istitutoveneto.it) 16th,17th and
> 18th November 2001. Participation is by invitation only - but there are a
> very small number of places still available.
> Contact should be made by e-mail to the Executive Secretary of the
> Academia Europaea at:
> acadeuro na compuserve.com
> The workshop will start at 14.30 on Friday 16th November and end at lunch
> time on Sunday 18th November. We are able to provide free hotel
> accommodation for the two nights of 16-17th and 17-18th and meals at the
> workshop, but unfortunately our budget will not stretch to paying for air
> or train fares. We have block booked hotel accommodation.
> It is intended that the workshop will operate primarily through
> 'brainstorming' round tables of some 10 people, reporting back to plenary
> meetings of the full workshop. In this way all participants will be
> expected to contribute. Each roundtable will be led by a facilitator and
> a rapporteur will record discussion.
> Given below is a draft programme with suggestions for the various issues
> that the Workshop might address. It is unlikely that we can discuss all
> of them; subjects on which to concentrate will depend on the final list
> of participants.
> The announced programme is given below - but we will now obviously also
> address the role of communications in abetting or fighting terrorism,
> the balance between law enforcement and free speech and related issues.
