World-Wide Web is the world's most powerful networked information system. It was originally conceived and developed at CERN1, where large high-energy physics collaborations created a demand for instantaneous information sharing between physicists working in different universities and institutes all over the world. Now it has millions of academic and commercial users.

On the occasion of the bi-annual meeting of the CERN1 -Russia Committee, under the co-chairmanship of Minister Boris Saltykov and CERN's Director-General, Professor Carlo Rubbia, a new Scientific and Technological Cooperation Agreement was formally signed on 30th October in the laboratories of the Institute for High Energy Physics (I.H.E.P.) in Protvino, near Moscow.
The fifth in a series of exhibitions at CERN1 presenting European research activities will be open to the public from 23 July to 11 September. CERN has invited the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) to present an overview of present research and technical developments in the field of thermonuclear fusion in Europe and elsewhere in the world. Fusion is one of the most exciting fields of scientific research, being the attempt to produce an unlimited and environmentally friendly source of energy by fusing atoms together.
