WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

a) to present an integrated view of the 'satellite communication' related
projects sponsored
under FP4, in line with the integration of ACTS, TELEMATICS and ESPRIT that
will take
place under the IST (Information Society Technologies) programme of the
Fifth Framework Programme;

b) to allow participants in the various programmes (ACTS, TELEMATICS,
ESPRIT) to be aware of what has happened in the other programmes and to
facilitates contacts between potential partners interested in 'satellite
communications' type proposals under the IST programme;

c) for those projects nearing termination or being terminated, to present
project results, in terms of e.g. developed technology, service validation,
experience with user groups, further plans.

d) to outline how the R&D work in the field under EC programmes complements
what is being sponsored by space agencies (e.g. ESA).

e) to introduce satcom opportunities under FP5 and their relation to other
national or European initiatives;
