The full text of the first annual report of the Information Society Forum, "Networks for people and their communities - Making the most of the Information Society in the European Union", has been published in the latest CORDIS Focus Supplement of 15 September 1996 (No 10).

The Information Society Forum, with 128 members from a wide range of backgrounds, was set up in 1995 to provide the Commission with a source of reflection, debate and advice on policies and priorities in the development of the Information Society. The Forum members come from five main groups: users, social groups, content and service providers, network operators and the European institutions. The first annual report aims to draw attention to the major issues that will affect the lives of people as the Information Society develops.

In addition to the report itself, the CORDIS Supplement also contains information on the Commission's recent communications on the Information Society which are aimed at preparing the ground for the updating of the Information Society Action Plan, originally adopted in 1994. These communications are particularly concerned with the effects of the development of the Information Society on society, now more apparent than in 1994.
