Information summit endorses key role of 'e-science'
Lead: "The first session of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) ended on Friday (12 December) with endorsement of a broad list of principles intended to guide the future development of information and communication technologies (ICTs), and of a 'road map' showing how these should be put into practice. Included in the first of these is a statement recognizing that science has a central role in the development of the information society, and that there is a need to ensure that scientific data remains widely accessible." David Dickson, SciDev.Net, 14 December 2003.
