The Federation of Hellenic Information Technology and Communications Enterprises (SEPE) has been appointed by WITSA as the host of the 14th World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT), which will be organized in Athens, Greece, from May 19th to May 21st 2004.

Students and young researchers (up to 32 years of age) are invited to submit abstracts of their work under the broad theme “IT with a human face” to the Michael Dertouzos Competition.
