By

The “eG8” will be held May 24 and 25 in Paris, just before the meeting of the G8 Summit in Paris.

“Participants in the e-G8 Forum will be able to exchange ideas about cutting-edge products and services. They will also be able to discuss the challenges and opportunities which they believe relevant to the future of the Internet, offering their opinions on a wide range of issues, including for example human rights, intellectual property and technological investment.”

Loic Moisand and Thibault Hanin, the co-Founders of Synthesio, have been invited to attend the eG8 amongst the limited number of invitations. Follow them on Twitter as @LoicMo and @ThibaultHanin.
