The 21st IFIP World Computer Congress will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia from 20th to 23rd September, 2010. This year the Congress is organized around eight streams, which reflect main areas of information technology research and applications: Deliver IT, Govern IT, Learn IT, Play IT, Sustain IT, Treat IT, Trust IT and Value IT. IFIP Technical Committees are organizing seventeen conferences, which will be included in these streams. In parallel the Australian Computer Society is organizing a series of parallel partner events, which will be part of the streams too.
The ICT community is strongly encouraged to participate in this high profile Congress, which will provide an update on the state-of-the-art and research directions in the distinct information technology areas. The Congress will give also opportunities to network with other colleagues from all over the world during the session breaks and social events. About 330 papers, which have been strictly reviewed by experts and selected by the International Program Committee, will be presented in the seventeen co-located IFIP conferences. Some of these conferences are established conferences that run every year and some others represent emerging areas of information technology. Additionally, the Congress will have six keynote speakers, who are prominent personalities in the areas of computers and communications, and that will present their speeches in plenary sessions. A set of panels for discussing different aspects of information technology will also take place, both at the plenary and conference levels.
