ICT Shaping Our World
I would like to congratulate the CANCON2014 conference organising committee, led by Dr Tim Turner, in their delivery of a highly successful ICT Shaping Our World conference at Hotel Realm last month. The conference brought together a terrific line up of speakers, ACS partners DAMA, appazure and sponsors Callida Consulting, CIT, UNSW Canberra, Information Professionals, PayPal Developer and ZEN Enterprise at a wonderful venue.
