=== > CONGRESS 2000

The ad-hoc preparatory committee of the INES Congress in the year 2000 met in Uppsala, Sweden, on January 10 and 11, 1998. The congress will address ''Challenges to science and engineering in the 21st century and the responsibility of engineers and scientists''. The meeting discussed intentions, expected outcome and first organisational steps. Stockholm University is a strong option as a conference venue. The tentative date is 14 -18 June, 2000. The meeting suggested designing plenary talks in a way that they form the basis of a textbook on ''Science and Global Problems''. As a next step several organisations from Sweden and beyond will be invited to act as coorganizers and to establish a program committee.

Tentative meeting dates are 28 March or 16 May, 1998.
