#RethinkingICT : Speakers Wanted

One of the successes of last year’s RethinkingICT conference was the range of people who volunteered to speak for 10 minutes during the morning. You can see the list of speakers here.

If you would like to volunteer to speak at this year’s conference please leave me a comment below or contact me via Twitter.

I would like people to speak about the challenges that will be faced with the switch to Computing from ICT.

Ticket details will be released soon.

  • e) how to check for accuracy…
