Europe's biggest research event for information and communication technologies
Setting the ICT research agenda for the next decade
The next ten years will see major transformations in the technological, industrial and business landscapes surrounding information and communication technologies, or "ICT". ICT 2008 has set the agenda for ICT research and innovation in Europe during this crucial decade.
The event has hosted leading visionaries from academia and industry and will address topics as diverse as Europe's role in shaping the future internet, ICT's contribution to advancing the sustainability agenda and alternative research paths for future ICT components and systems. These and many other cutting-edge themes (to link to http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/events/ict/2008/themes/index_en.htm) will be explored in depth at ICT 2008.
