The key decision-making body of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), the global professional body for those working in the ICT sector, has begun meeting in Colombo.

The IFIP General Assembly is engaged in two days of meetings at the Galadari Hotel in the lead-up to the Computer Society of Sri Lanka’s NITC/SEARCC Conference from 13 to 15 September.

IFIP President Mike Hinchey opened the meeting, welcoming attendees from over 40 countries around the world to discuss issues impacting the industry and its members, which are national ICT professional societies and research bodies.

The IFIP General Assembly meets in person only once a year at a different location around the world. Many of the delegates, who are leading ICT experts in various disciplines, will stay on to present at or attend the NITC/SEARCC Conference starting today.

CSSL President Yasas Abeywickrama said that the combined event platform is the largest international ICT event ever held in Colombo, providing a valuable opportunity for the sharing of information and enabling local ICT practitioners to expand their knowledge, make international connections and explore potential business opportunities.
