IFIP event


Welcome to WCC 2012
IFIP and NGI are organizing the WCC this year from 24-26 September in Amsterdam.

The theme is: Towards an Innovative, Secure and Sustainable Information Society, but you could summarize that as "IT for a better World".

The benefit of participating will be that you will be able to hear about the long term developments in ICT and how they interrelate. Many prominent experts are speaking, and there is the chance to interact with your peers from all over the world. The result should be a Roadmap on how ICT will improve the world towards 2020.
