The Association of London Government is hosting the first ever major European conference to look at what can and should be done to combat violence and pornography on the Internet.

Part funded by the European Union, the two day conference will focus on the technical and moral issues around policing, legality and censorship to tackle the growing amount and ever easier access to violence and pornography.

The conference will look in particular at what can be done about the increasing amount of violence against women and child pornography.

'The development of new communications systems and the Internet in particular has happened so fast that it has been totally unchecked.

'The ALG is taking a lead in getting people from different sectors together to debate the issues as to whether and how we can develop some sort of control on what goes onto the Internet and how it is accessed,' said ALG chair Toby Harris.

The conference will be held on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th February at the Institute of Civil Engineers, 1 Great George Street, London SW1.

Booking is essential. Anyone who is interested in attending and would like further information should contact Valerie Soloman at the ALG on 0171 222 7799.
