The proceedings of the conference ENTER - International Conference on Information and Communications Technologies in Tourism provide an international forum for the discussion of the role of telecommunication and information systems in tourism, inform potential users and people concerned with the importance of such technologies and to explain their functioning, and finally intensify the contact and the communication between researchers, system developers and users. Tourism and leisure industry experiences a fast technological development, however, the different participants in this market are very differently prepared to meet this challange. The general theme of ENTER in 1995 is electronic marketing. This is the background to the discussion presented in this volume, dealing with questions like how an equal and fruitful cooperation for all participants can take place, when one should participate in this development and enter the electronic market, what are the dangers of entering too early or too late, whether the environment is prepared for such a development, and what can be learned from other sectors. The results of this discussion are of interest for scientists, researchers and practitioners in tourism as well as in the computer industry.

The Ruodlieb, an anonymous narrative poem dating from the 11th century, is widely acknowledged to be one of the most interesting pieces of latin literature to have survived from the Middle Ages, albeit in a fragmentary state. The poem describes the fortunes of a young knight in a foreign country and on his return home, embodies many features both of medieval latin epic and of vernacular works such as the Nibelungenlied, looking forward in many aspects to the courtly romances of Chretien de Troyes. It thus stands in both latin and vernacular traditions, and is consequently of great interest not only to the medieval latin specialist but also to the student of medieval literature and culture in general. The text is based on a fresh examination of the existing manuscript fragments, and takes into account all previous editions: an apparatus criticus is appended. The introduction tackles questions of date and provenance, grammar, metre and literary background, whilst the commentary deals with points of philological, literary and cultural interest. Latin text with facing-page English translation, introduction and notes.

Providing a timely contribution to the ongoing questions surrounding topics which are by definition subject to varying stakeholder interpretations, this book addresses “the missing link” between theoretical CSR concepts and everyday management practice. It acts as a guide to awaken managers to the advantages of adopting a CSR “mindset” when developing sustainable business strategies. The book consists of three parts: 1) A theoretical realm which establishes the key concepts and rationale for the adoption of a sustainable CSR approach, 2) A practical realm which addresses putting CSR and sustainability into business practice, 3) An educational realm which proposes how to incorporate the concepts into teaching and training.
