    Dear Colleagues

    We are pleased to announce that Nina Wakeford (Director of the Incubator
    for Critical Inquiry into Technology and Ethnography (INCITE) research
    centre in the Department of Sociology, University of Surrey, UK) will
    present the keynote address opening this year's conference on Cultural
    Attitudes towards Technology and Culture (CATaC'04). Professor Wakeford's
    address is entitled "Technology and Mobility at the Margins".

    The program for CATaC'04 further includes presenters from 28 countries
    focusing on six major themes:
    1. Culture: theory and praxis
    2. ICTs and intercultural communication
    3. ICTs and cultural hybridity
    4. Culture and economy
    5. Governments and activists in culture, technology and communication
    6. Culture, communication, and e-learning
    as well as several themed sessions.

    The program also includes two panels, each chaired and shaped by
    distinguished colleagues:
    1. The Multilingual Internet - chairs, Susan Herring and Brenda Danet
    2. Utopian Dreams vs. Real-World Conditions: Under what conditions can ICTs
    really help worse off communities? - chair, Michel Menou

    CATaC'04 will take place 27 June - 1 July 2004, in the "city of the sun" -
    Karlstad, Sweden - right after Midsummer celebrations on June 25-26.

    editions of the PCC workshop, people from distinct but communicating
    communities will gather in an informal and friendly atmosphere.

    Higher education institutions are facing complex issues involved in the
    use of campus computer networks, the delivery of scholarly materials to
    faculty and students, and securing information disseminated on campus.
    This symposium will focus on these and other issues that affect the
    delivery of quality, copyrighted content in higher education, including:

    - The impact of the rising costs of scholarly materials
    - Peer-to-peer file sharing over university networks
    - The impact of digital rights management systems
    - Current legislation impacting copyright and higher education
    - Other provocative topics pertinent to the symposium subject

    Nationally recognized experts and scholars will discuss these issues
    during the two day program. For more information about speakers and the
    symposium agenda please review the following URLs:

    >For the researcher of today, the brave new world of information
    >communications technology offers a cornucopia of resources unknown to
    >earlier generations. But the infrastructure to ensure long-term access and
