                    General Information:

                    A congress marking the 20th anniversary of the
                    centre for research on computing and the law
                    (CRID) will be held in Namur, Belgium, between 8
                    and 10 November 1999. 

                    The conference, which will be addressed by
                    representatives from the European Commission,
                    intends to open debate on the legal stakes that
                    underlie today's development of - increasingly
                    widespread - new technologies. 

                    It aims 'to bring together the friends of CRID',
                    an organisation formed 20 years ago to carry out
                    research in the field of information and
                    communications technologies from legal, technical
                    and socio-economic perspectives. 

                    Two workshops on Monday 8 November will deal with
                    the responsibility of Internet intermediaries and
                    universal service. The following two days will be
                    made up of plenary sessions and four working
                    groups, ending with a discussion of conceptual
                    considerations and recommendations. 


                    The congress will be held in French and English
                    with simultaneous interpretation, although the
                    workshops and working groups will be in English
                    only. Admission to the workshop on 8 November will
                    be limited to the first 60 applicants.
