    Information Communication Technology (ICT) is becoming more pervasive within societies and our personal lives. Recognizing this increasing role, this conference was conceived to provide a forum for researchers in both academia and industry to share their latest research contributions in the field, while promoting networking of people and ideas. This conference allows attendees to recognize emerging research trends and directions while evaluating present challenges with their proposed solutions.
