Members of the Harvard community will have a chance to participate in the third International Conference on Internet & Society. The University is providing a forum for leading scholars, practitioners, and futurists to freely discuss and debate how the Internet will restructure and transform society in the 21st century. The Conference offers an interdisciplinary look at the vast reach of the Internet. Topics will include e-commerce, health, ethics, law, entertainment, and education. Harvard’s previous Internet conferences, held in 1996 and 1998, attracted audiences from all over the world and included leaders in business, technology, academia, government, and law. Through panel discussions and sessions, participants will have the opportunity to network with speakers and other conference attendees.
