"Cyberwar between Israel & Palestine - New Media Battles in the Middle East
and their European Perspective"

On June 29th, 2001 the Department of Communications Sciences of the LMU
Munich and the Hubert Burda Center for Innovative Communication of the BGU
in Israel will hold a symposium that will explore definition, appearances
and impacts of information warfare, of Cyberwars.

The current conflict in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine, where
war is excessively waged via information and communication technology, will
be the main theme of lectures of Israeli and Palestine participants. 
Further lectures and discussion will thence survey the importance of the
issue in general and from a German and European perspective.

The topic of Cyberwar and Cyberpeace, of warfare and peacemaking via the new
media, has not received much attention among the German and European public
and the scientific community - despite its increasing importance in regional
and global conflicts. The medium of the Internet, which is primarily thought
of as being a place for communication and dialogue between people has become
a medium for warfare and destruction.
The current Cyberwar between Israel and Palestine is a dramatic example of
these disastrous effects, when war is waged not only via bombs, street
fights, and propaganda, but increasingly via information and communication

Hosted by the Department of Communications Sciences of the
Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, the upcoming symposium on June 29th,
2001 will further a previous event of the Hubert Burda Center for Innovative
Communications at the Ben-Gurion-University of the Negev in Israel. 
The symposium is therefore intended to carry the topic to Europe and will be
one of the first events in Germany dealing with this issue. 

Lectures and discussion will focus on the role of new media in this local
conflict and peacemaking process and attempt to explore definition,
appearances and impacts of information warfare on a more general
perspective. A final panel discussion should lead to answers, in which ways
countries, enterprises or ordinary citizens can protect themselves against
the threats of Cyberwar, and even find means of making Cyberpeace.
