4th eIndia Conference

The objective is to bring together ICT4D experts, practitioners, business leaders and stakeholders onto one platform, through keynote addresses, paper presentations, thematic workshops, exhibition while providing in the process an opportunity for participants to interact with a wide and diverse development community, to carry forward the vision of the region and consolidate them into an actionable programme. Particular to this year's Conference, one new theme is added focusing on â€˜Municipal ITâ€™.
The delivery of eINDIA2008 will be in such way that the growing need for a multi-stakeholder participation of seven overlapping domains of ICT4D, namely - eGov and digitalLEARNING, eHEALTH and mServe, Telecentre Forum, eAgriculture, and Municipal IT is addressed under a single knowledge-sharing platform allowing people and organisations working in apparently isolated domains of ICTD, to intertwine with each other and engage themselves in mutual experience sharing and understanding of convergent issues in their individual pursuit for development.
The conference will comprise seven tracks, including the following:
- egov INDIA2008 to provides a platform for all stakeholders, policy-makers, practitioners, industry leaders, academicians and architects of e-Government projects, to discuss the achievements, challenges, and the progress made towards achieving the goals of e-Governance.
