  Dear Sir/Madam,

  It is our great pleasure to announce the 1st conference on telematics
opportunities for regional development that will be held in
  Tanum (Sweden) on 15-16 June 1999. The purpose of this event is to raise
awareness among Regions, Towns and Cities on the
  benefits of telematics technologies applied to regional development, on
the basis of the results of European joint pilot projects..
  The conference will be followed by an EC concertation meeting for the
projects of the action line "Integrated Applications for
  Digital Sites".

  This event is organised by the TeleRegions Network and TeleCities in the
framework of the European Digital Cities (EDC)
  project, a support action of the European Commission's Telematics
Applications Programme.

  Contributions will cover the following themes:

       Support to rural development
       Case studies on economic benefits of new telematics services
       Transfers between cities and regions

       Regional telematics services to support Small and Medium size
Enterprises
       Social inclusion
       Quality of life
       Reorganisation of work in European regions
