Abstract

This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

@LIS programme (http://europa.eu/comm/europeaid/projects/alis/index_en.htm) was launched by EC in December 2001 to extend the benefits of the Information Society to all citizens of Latin America and to bridge the digital divide. To achieve these objectives, @LIS has opened the political and regulatory dialogue between Europe and Latin America and will fund a range of infrastructure application projects and technical support programmes. As its principal infrastructure project, @LIS will support the ALICE project which will carry out the recommendations brought forward by the CAESAR study (March-August 2002). The ALICE project will develop an IP research network infrastructure within the Latin American region and towards Europe.
