ArchiveRELEASE ON RECEIPT
The conferences--to begin November 3, 1997 in Baltimore, MD--will be held in U.S. cities with a major federal presence to minimize government travel costs. Registration preference will be given to attendees in the immediate region of each conference.
The one day sessions will feature strategies for increasing electronic access to government services. Expert panels will discuss IT topics, including Internet/Intranet successes, the future of Distance Learning and collaboration, IT acquisition and procurement reform, and privacy and security. A special feature at each conference will be a "demo-lab" where participants can get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art software and web applications.
Both government agencies and private industry information technology suppliers will exhibit products and services at each site.
