National College of Ireland’s School of Computing has organised this year’s Information Technology & Telecommunications Conference (IT&T) Conference to take place at the college’s city-centre campus in Dublin on 29th and 30th October.
The conference, now in its 14th year, is a unique event in the Irish tech calendar and brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from both academia and industry along with funding agencies and international business experts.

NCI lecturer Dr Cristina Muntean, Co-Chair of the conference this year, said: “NCI is delighted to host this year’s event and to bring together key players from academia and industry in the areas of Information Technology and Telecommunications. Ireland has a strong research base in this area and the conference will create a forum for academia and industry to present their latest research results and developments, discuss ideas and demonstrate applications.”
