I would like to draw you attention to the forthcoming International Conference "Towards Knowledge Democracy", which will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands, on 25-27 August 2009. http://knowledgedemocracy/nl

Background information: "This conference offers you a unique opportunity to share your visions and experiences on how to deal with the challenges and possibilities that occur on the interface between science, politics, society and the media. The ability to handle these boundary issues is essential in our world where knowledge becomes increasingly democratised. An international audience consisting of scientists, politicians, government officials, media professionals, societal organisations and other interested parties will convene in Leiden to exchange ideas. We expect hundreds of visitors and over a hundred keynote and panel speakers to discuss their views during this three-day event."
