         --------------------------------
         4-5 October 2002, Trieste, Italy

This is an open round table among scientists, decision-makers,
journalists, electronic publishers, content providers, information and
communication technology experts, donors and non-profit organizations
working on the dissemination of science and the transfer of knowledge
and
technology towards developing countries.

The goal is to bring together all interested parties to analyse, share
experiences, promote ideas and discuss
      * innovative technological tools,
      * the digital divide,
      * licensing issues,
      * concrete strategic alternatives
to support scientists working in remote areas and having low-bandwidth,
or
expensive access to on-line database services and the Internet.
