Innovative communities, businesses and governments around Australia will be able to share their experiences, successes and lessons learned around Information and Communication Technology (ICT) at a national conference in May. Early bird registration closes 4th March.

Organised by Community Information Strategies Australia (CISA Inc.) the “Connecting Up” 2005 Conference in Adelaide aims to promote the social and economic benefits for all Australian Communities with access to low-cost, high quality ICT infrastructure.

It will also provide opportunities for like-minded Not for Profits, communities, governments and businesses to build networks and develop joint projects.

Connecting Up Themes in 2005 include:
Information services for communities (IS)
Goal: To provide a platform to discuss projects designed to improve information services to individuals and communities.
Speakers will present case studies about how information services are being used to serve communities.

Communications (CO)
Goal: To provide a platform to discuss projects designed to connect communities with each other via communications technologies.
Speakers will present case studies about programs that are connecting communities with other communities in their area, or region or the world

Training and support in ICT (TS)
Goal: To highlight training and support opportunities for community organisations that will help them build their ICT skills and infrastructure.
Speakers will discuss how governments and business can assist and have resourced community organisations to achieve their ICT goals through skills development and equipment upgrades.

Social Change through ICT (SC)
Goal: To promote ICT strategies for social and economic change for disadvantaged and isolated communities.
Speakers will show how ICT strategies can be used to bring about social and economic change in their communities.
