The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) meets in Geneva Dec. 10-12, and all major hotels are reported full during the conference. Swiss authorities are bringing in 1,000 extra police from surrounding cantons to strengthen security. Thus far there is no specific threat against the conference or attendees, and no evidence to suggest a repeat of the organized violence during the G-8 Summit last summer. The conference may, of course, draw protesters, so attendees and visitors should be alert for demonstrations and avoid them.
