                    General Information:

                    Earlier this year, the European Commission
                    published a call for proposals for standardisation
                    projects for the Information Society in the
                    context of the Commission's initiative on
                    standardisation (ISIS). 

                    It has now published a call for expressions of
                    interest with a view to setting up an advisory
                    panel on Information Society standardisation
                    initiatives. The panel will monitor the
                    implementation of the ISIS work programme,
                    evaluate the results achieved, and identify
                    priorities and optimal working methods for future
                    initiatives in the field of Information Society
                    standardisation. The panel should include
                    representatives of industrial users, the public
                    interest, academia and consumers. 

                    Candidates expressing interest in membership in
                    the advisory panel may qualify on the grounds of
                    their personal expertise in one or more of the
                    following areas: 

                    - Technological expertise as regards IT and
                    related technologies, in particular on
                    interoperability issues; - Legal expertise as

                    particular with a view to the market power and

                    commerce and (public) procurement; - Consumer
                    protection and representation of public interest,
