22 April 1997

Dear Sir/Madam,

It is our great pleasure to announce that the theme of the third European
Digital Cities Conference, Berlin 1-2 December 1997, will be "The Road to
Deployment". This follows two successful conferences. The first, "The
Challenge of the Future", Copenhagen May 1996, set the scene for cities and
regions in the Information Society. The second, "The Role of Cities, Towns
and Regions in the Development of the Information Society", Strasbourg
December 1996, looked more in depth at the policy framework surrounding this
issue. These conferences are one of the major awareness raising components
of the EDC project, a support action of the European Commission s Telematics
Applications Programme.

Proceedings and abstracts of these conferences are available from the EDC
web site at the URL: www.edc.eu.int/in-action/library.html

This third European Digital Cities Conference will focus on the
socio-economic benefits of telematics for urban areas, covering:
  the achievements so far in pilot applications and services,
  the existing and emerging infrastructures for deployment,
  the identification of the barriers for deployment,
  the challenges and benefits of cross-sector integration of telematics

The key players involved in these developments will be represented among the
conference participants : local and regional authorities, research
institutions, industry and operators from all over Europe.

We invite all of you to submit summaries of presentations on innovative and
concrete applications of telematics in an urban and regional context. The
presentation of validation trials and resulting exploitation plans will be
of specific interest. Abstracts of papers should be submitted to the EDC
coordination office by 30 May 1997 for consideration by the Programme
Committee. Proposals for round table discussions or workshops are also

We also invite you to present demonstrations for the exhibition which will
take place parallel to the conference. Preference will be given to
demonstrations of innovative applications in a cross-sectoral context. For
further information on the exhibition and expressions of interest, please

We look forward to welcoming you in Berlin.

Yours sincerely,

Eric Mino
European Digital Cities project coordinator
