On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law and ICT (ICRI) at K.U.Leuven is organizing an international conference on "Trust in the Information Society". The goal of the conference is to advance the reflection and debate about trust-generating mechanisms in the Information Society. Through a series of thought-provoking lectures delivered by leading experts from various disciplines –law, economics, engineering, computer science, social and cultural studies– the conference intends to confront different insights and to explore new routes and tools – legal and non-legal – to generate more trust in networked, digital information and communication technologies that are shaping modern society.
