Abstract

The Information Society is already a fact of life. Even today information and communication technologies are widely diffused throughout society and are affecting styles of life and work. Clearly these changes have a long way to run, new applications of information and communication technologies are emerging all the time. This document covers a seminar convened to better grasp the great opportunities for progress which are being offered by these new information and communication technologies.
Many topics are covered including: the development of telematics and telemedicine; development and public support (the case of the Swedish Work Life Fund); the Alexandria Library in the information society; the impact of new information technologies on employment; information society and postmodern culture; policy implications for distance learning in the European information society and the widening EU; multimedia and hypermedia; jobs, skills barriers and new illiteracy; ethical questions and conclusions.
