Clinton adviser to front Internet summit

PRESIDENT Clinton's Internet adviser will be a key speaker at a summit on future regulation of the Internet to be held in London next week.

US domestic policy development adviser Ira Magaziner will outline the US government's position on electronic commerce and reform of the domain name system at the 'Internet Executive Summit' at Westminster's Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre from 19-21 January, via a video conference link.

She will also attend a later summit in Washington, US, from 3-4 February.

Magaziner heads a US inter-agency taskforce which was set up in April to issue policy recommendations and consult with telecommunications companies.

Both summits are being held by London computer training and consultancy company Prince.
