ICT for a global sustainable future

In order to avoid major worldwide crises, industrial, emerging and developing countries will need to agree, sooner or later, on an alternative way forward, based on sustainable development, sustainable economic growth and more equally shared resources. ICTs will play a central role in this future, not only because ICTs have become in just two decades a key driver of the development of all countries worldwide, but also because ICT can efficiently contribute to the achievement of the revised economic, social and environmental objectives which this future envisage. During two days, participants will have the opportunity to discuss what is at stake in terms of societal developments and to define which research areas can be explored in order to have in the future appropriate infrastructures, applications and services, based on ICT. Even if registration for the event is free of charge, pre-registration is compulsory, due to security rules linked to access to event venue. Moreover, early registration is strongly recommended since, due to room capacity constraints, the registration process may be closed prior to the event.
