I am certain that as a child I visited Ghent with my parents. Who would have thought that 15 years on that city would be host to Europe's most exciting interenational blogging conference, Euroblog 2007.
I was sent all the details from Serge No Copy Cornelus who wondered if I fancied plugging the event. No probs, Serge, although as I am

Social Software: A Revolution in Communication? Implications and challenges for public relations, journalism and marketing
16 and 17 March 2007 - Artevelde College Ghent (Belgium)
The 2007 symposium will present insights from EuroBlog 2007, the second pan-European quantitative survey on the usage of social media by communication professionals, draw new theoretical insights and respond to industry feedback by identifying and presenting examples of best practice.
If you're interested in social media and the impact they have on the field of communications, the EuroBlog conference is a must, especially considering the fact that on 16 March the results of the EuroBlog 2007 survey, conducted in co-operation with Euprera, will be made public. Artevelde College and Euprera are organising the EuroBlog 2007 Conference together.
Participants and top speakers from across Europe
Participants at EuroBlog 2007 are expected, as last year, to consist of researchers from all over Europe (including many involved in the Euprera network of academics from more than 30 countries) as well as communications executives from major companies, institutions, agencies and service providers specialised in the field of online campaigns, interactive media, digital communication and issues monitoring.
Speakers include a wide variety of top researchers and practitioners from nine countries. Keynote speaker at the Chair Jos Willems on Friday is Neville Hobson, managing partner of crayon (the first virtual communication agency), podcasting guru (For Immediate Release) and blogger on www.nevillehobson.com.
The number of seats at the Chair Jos Willems is not unlimited. So register quickly and make sure you do not miss out on this unique opportunity to sharpen your knowledge on social media as well networking with a fine selection of people with whom you share professional interests.
