The European Commission, DG XIII, has published a call for expressions of interest for organizations or individuals wishing to be associated with the RTD Advanced Communications Technologies and Services (ACTS) programme (1994-1998).

Following a successful first call for proposals (OJ No C 357 of 15.12.1994) which established the basis of the ACTS programme, the European Commission will be launching a second call for proposals in September 1995.

This second call will aim to:

- Enhance involvement in the ACTS programme through:

. Enlargement of participation (in particular providing opportunities for organizations to join existing ACTS projects);
. Horizontal links bridging field trials supported in different programmes on national, EU and international levels;
. Vertical links bridging gaps between advanced communications trials in ACTS and user communities;
. Concerted actions providing specific fora for consensus formation and consolidation of guidelines for the introduction of advanced services;
. Secondment of young engineers to work as visiting scientists within ACTS projects and national host organizations outside of their country of origin;

- Consolidation of technological work in the areas of:
. Cellular television and interactive multimedia environments;
. Harmonized control and management in photonic networks;
. Satellite components for third generation mobile and broadband wireless systems;
