Every year, the member states of the Group of Eight (G8) convene in one of their countries to discuss a wide variety of subjects, including globalization, economics, and other weighty matters. This year, the G8 Summit will take place in the German city of Heiligendamm on the Baltic Sea. With all of the preparations going on, it makes sense that the German government has created this site as a clearinghouse of material on the summit. Visitors will find an outline of the summit's agenda, news updates, and an extensive section that details the history of these international forums. Also, the "Video/Audio" section contains webcasts of various events at the forum, including press conferences, meetings, and different briefings. The site is rounded out by an area that lets visitors sign up to receive both email updates and RSS feeds.
