> The New Media, Technology and Everyday Life in Europe Conference 
> addresses
> this
> agenda directly.  It will ask three crucial questions which

> conferences generally fail to address:
>
> § What does a user-friendly society mean?
> § What are the facilitators of, and the obstacles to, its realisation?
> § What are the consequences for markets and policy making?
>
> The Conference builds on and expands a range of research activities 
> funded
> by the EC
> 4th and 5th Framework Programme (2000-03), COST networks actions and 
> IST
> Programmes.
> It is  timely in its situation at the interface between 5th and 6th
> Framework
> Programmes. Above all, it draws on the research experience of the EMTEL
> network
