NATO’s Deputy Assistant Secretary General for External Relations (Public Diplomacy Division) will be opening the conference’s media day (22 May 2006) with a lecture on terrorism and the Internet.

Jamie Shea, 51, has worked for the organisation for 25 years. Before becoming Director in 2000, he was the NATO spokesman and Deputy Director of Information and Press for seven years, most famously the official spokesman for the allied military assault on Yugoslavia. Jamie Shea is a regular lecturer on NATO and European security affairs.

American legal scholar, Professor Cass Sunstein, will be examining the threat and promise of the Internet for democracy and free speech at WWW2006's media day.

Cass Sunstein, 50, is the Karl Llewellyn Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago Law School and Department of Political Science. He has testified before Congress on many issues, including free speech in the media, and has advised several nations on constitution-making and law reform initiatives, including Ukraine, Poland, China, South Africa, and Russia.

Before joining the University of Chicago’s Law School, Cass Sunstein worked as an attorney-advisor in the Office of the Legal Counsel of the U.S. Department of Justice. He has written extensively on constitutional law, the First Amendment, and jurisprudence.

The International World Wide Web Conference, an annual event, is the premier gathering for the WWW community. The fifteenth conference in the series comes to the UK for the first time and will be held in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh.

WWW2006, sponsored by the School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton, will bring together the researchers, developers and businesses that drive the Web forward.

Organized by the International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2), it has provided the annual public forum for communicating research and development of the Web infrastructure and applications, as well as W3C initiatives.

The WWW2006 programme addresses topics in media, e-governance, commerce, education and science.

The technical programme will draw on global research and industrial strengths to provide a strategic forum for the dissemination of new techniques and applications throughout the research community, the business and company sector and government agencies.
