Building Global Bridges: New Internet Presentation of the Munich Security Conference Start of the Accreditation Procedure for Representatives of the Media

The Munich Security Conference (MSC) will be online with a new web page. At the same time this is the start of the accreditation procedure for the media coverage of the 46th Munich Security Conference from 5 to 7 February 2010.In its more than 40 year-old history the Conference has more and more become a compulsory date in international politics. With this modern and newly conceived internet offer Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger, Chairman of the Munich Security Conference intends not only to inform immediately in the run-up to and directly from the Conference, but to additionally promote a dialogue on security policy all year round and to establish cooperation. The new homepage will be available at One of the innovations of the new web presentation of MSC for instance is the column “Monthly Mind”. In this column which appears monthly the Chairman of the Security Conference or some guest commentator regularly gives his view on current issues of international security policy. In the September issue he addresses the reform of the German security architecture and demands concrete steps towards a well-matched German foreign policy. In addition, the presentation informs on new event formats of the Munich Security Conference such as the MSC Core Group Meeting in Washington, D.C. which will take place in autumn 2009 for the first time. The new MSC web presentation is particularly user friendly for representatives of the media. The media navigation field offers information, press releases or a free further use for the download of photographs. Once the new web presentation is activated the accreditation procedure for representatives of the media at the next MSC will be started. On the basis of experience gained during the past years we have also considerably optimised the accreditation procedure for the upcoming security conference and initiated a two-step model. Thus we offer you to announce your general interest in a participation in the 46th MSC via an online form no later than 30 October 2009. On account of the room situation, unfortunately the number of seats for representatives of the media are limited. We will inform you on an invitation to the conference in the course of December. Therefore, we would like to ask you to await our accreditation confirmation before booking transport and accommodation. .       In case of further questions do not hesitate to contact the conference media centre:
