> International Summer Conference in Finland
> The Informing Science Institute, the National Communication 
> Association, and
> the Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide will be sponsoring 
> an
> International Summer Conference on communication and technology in 
> Pori,
> Finland, June 24-27, 2003. The purpose of the conference is to spur 
> debate
> and increase understanding to meet the challenges and explore the
> opportunities posed by the new Information Age, and to reach out in
> innovative ways to seek partnerships and solutions that bridge gaps in
> knowledge, expertise, and interdisciplinary cooperation. The topic 
> areas to
> be considered range from the digital divide to interpersonal 
> communication
> to misinforming and misinformation. Further details are available at 
> the
> conference web site: http://www.is2003.org.
> In addition to lunches, coffee, tea, and snack breaks, and guided 
> walking
> tours of the city during the day, the conference features an informal
> welcoming reception, a banquet with music at a traditional Finnish
> restaurant by the river, and a reception at City Hall hosted by the 
> City of
> Pori. The conference will be held at the Pori Unit of the Turku School 
> of
> Economics and Business Administration. Pori is on the West coast of 
> Finland,
> about 120 km (or 75 miles) north of Turku and 240 km (or 150 miles)
> north-west of Helsinki. The main part of Pori, a peaceful city of 
> 75,000, is
> about eight blocks square, so it is easy to walk almost everywhere.
> Traffic is light, and many people ride bicycles. It is easy to reach 
> Pori
> from either Helsinki or Turku by air, bus, train, or rental car, or 
> even
> ferry from Sweden via Turku. A trip is planned on Saturday, the day 
> after
> the conference, to nearby Yyteri Beach, a sandy beach known as the 
> "Finnish
> Riviera," with a water slide and a hiking trail along the shore, and/or
> Reposaari, a small fishing village unspoiled by tourism. Convention
> attendees will also be able to participate in a post-conference study 
> trip
> to the University of Lapland above the Arctic Circle, land of the 
> Midnight
> Sun and Northern Lights.
