27 November 1995 - 27 November 1995
Belgium

This year's European Information Technology Conference (EITC) and Exhibition will take place on 27-29 November 1995 in Brussels. The event, organized by DG III (Industry) of the European Commission, will give business leaders, public administrators, researchers and individual citizens the opportunity to explore the latest information technologies, and to debate the wider issues and future directions of the Information Society.

The exhibition, in particular, is designed to illustrate new developments in the Information Society, highlighting the opportunities, benefits and new working practices associated with these developments. It will include the following main sections:

- Display technologies (IT - the human interface):
Building European capabilities in the display technology fields is a vital part of maintaining a Europe-wide electronic manufacturing capability. Until recently, most advances in display technologies have been US or Japanese led. However, greater cooperation between European companies, under the aegis of the ESPRIT programme, is at last producing the results which show Europe's capabilities in this field. European companies working together have made technological advances which are capable of showing a lead to the world. These include:
. High performance imaging in a flat-panel monitor (Planar electroluminescent displays);
. World-leading field emission displays (AIMFED);
. New displays for personal information products (PROFELICITA); . Industrial process monitoring using plasma panels (LIPP);
. Ruggedized displays for hostile environments (ECAM);

- The Info Agora (The impact of IT on the individual):
Our personal and professional lives are increasingly affected by the spread of the information society. Both at the office and in the home, technology is changing our lives. Europe must keep up with that change, and even take a lead and push it in a direction which benefits us as individuals. This section of the exhibition shows some of the technologies influencing the direction our society is taking. These include:
. New applications for the financial industry;
. Applications empowering the consumer;
. Mobile services;
. Multimedia for the travel trade;
. Interactive multimedia services;

- Emergency in Euro-City (IT to serve society):
This section will look at the development of IT applications for the service of society in general, particularly in the areas of:
. Crisis management for major hazards;
. New aids for emergency services;
. Improving vehicle safety and efficiency;
. Information technologies for public administrations;

- The multimedia gallery (IT for commerce and industry):
This section, which also includes "The Software Fair" and "Multimedia Kiosks", will look, in particular, at:
. Avionics applications for the 21st century;
. New techniques for manufacturing processes;
. Robotics technology in action;

- Zap Café (IT for leisure):
A "CyberCafe" where visitors can try their hand at "surfing" the Internet.For further information on the EITC'95 exhibition, including the exhibition guide, please contact:
