The World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) will be held in Montréal, from Oct. 22- 24 at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal. Every two years, the WCIT is organized in a different country under auspices of the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA). According to organizers, it has become the world’s leading information technology gathering, with prominent speakers, leading thinkers, and business leaders from all over the world invited to participate.

A World Tech Jam kicks off WCIT 2012 from June 5-7, with 20,000 online contributors collaborating and sharing their ideas, their passion, and their insights on a massive scale into the creation of a true bottom-up Global Digital Society Action Plan.

“When compared to conventional engagement techniques, jamming or digital brainstorming has many advantages,” said Anthony Williams, WCIT 2012 Program Chair. “And for the first time, IT users around the world will lead the conversation. This event will give users a voice – this is a giant step for the IT world and a first.”

One of the results of the Jam will be a Digital Agenda that will have influence on the WCIT 2012 program.
