Building Tomorrow's Technology Today

The Philippines' potential to lead in information and communications technology (ICT) and Game Development is very promising. Currently, we are the preferred IT outsourcing candidate, second only to India.

The challenge for industry, government and academe is to unite in their efforts to maintain, if not improve the current situation of ICT in the country in order to explore these potentials. This conference is in response to that challenge. It will highlight current state of ICT in the country and its role in national development; promote awareness of current (local) research activities in key areas; and encourage research collaboration between industry, academe, government and private institutions.

Key areas to be tackled include E-governance, E-learning, Knowledge Management, and Game Development. Special attention is given to the Game Development industry which is expected to grow from $5M in 2004 to $9.8B by 2009.
