The cast01 conference is overshadowed by the attacks in the United States which took place on September, 11. Our sympathies go to our many colleagues, friends, and family in the US. As a concrete sign of our concern, we would like to use the cast conference as a way to respond to the events which are now uppermost on many of our minds.

Issues addressed in the cast01 conference such as electronic surveillance, the control of space, and local and global communication take on a new meaning in the context of a large-scale, coordinated attack on civilians with no forewarning. In reaction to these terrible events we invited the speakers to consider, where appropriate, bringing this perspective into their presentations.

On Sunday, September 23, from 11 - 12.30 h we invite you to join the reflections on cast01 in the Auditorium of the Kunstmuseum Bonn. To get there see:

The Sunday event will be open to the public. Please send email if you like to attend on Sunday:

Looking forward to seeing you at cast01!
