The 2012 edition of the World IT Forum, WITFOR 2012, to be held in New Delhi in April 2012 will provide a good knowledge sharing opportunity on mobilising ICTs for change.

The World Information Technology Forum (WITFOR) is a unique global forum initiated by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), which was formed under the auspices of UNESCO.

IFIP has been organising WITFOR every second year since 2003 in cooperation with the government of the host country. The inaugural WITFOR was held in Lithuania in 2003, followed by Botswana in 2005, Ethiopia in 2007 and Vietnam in 2009. 

The fifth IFIP World IT Forum, WITFOR 2012, will be held at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi, on 16th – 18th April 2012, under the overall theme of ‘Sustainable Human Development’, with a focus on four key areas:

  • Agriculture
  • Education
  • Health
  • E-Governance

Organised in partnership with the Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India, WITFOR 2012 will provide a unique opportunity for sharing knowledge on mobilising ICT for change, among a diverse range of professionals and across countries with different development conditions.
