Outline of Brainstorming
The main objective of this Tampere event is to produce a draft of the Conceptual Development pilot project proposal from each regional group. This will include a series of plans and recommendations related to computer based broadband Internet telecommunication applications in distance learning, tele-health and tele-medicine. The proposals in the range of $500,000 to 1,000,000 will be submitted by each regional group to the InfoDev of the World Bank and other financial sources in the North America, Europe and Japan.
During the brainstorming sessions, each participant will be placed into one of three regional groups;
The proposal of each regional group will focus on the following issues;
Regarding the brainstorming sessions, some simple guidelines will apply. Participants are asked to abide by these guidelines to support the accomplishment of the mission proposed for each regional group.
Each Moderator is responsible for the completion of the Regional Group proposal for his/her respective Regional Group.

This commitment also applies to Alternate Moderators, who will be asked to support sub-group breakout sessions and facilitation of the full Regional Group when needed.
The source document and all verbal presentations throughout the conference will be in English. Therefore, Moderators will be fluent in English to assure a reasonably consistent proposal across the Regional Groups.
Moderators will be responsible for the dedication of participants to the assignment of the group in the following ways;
In summary, Coordinators, Moderators and Rapporteurs will need to orient Regional Group efforts towards the construction of the draft proposal.
