The Computer Society of Sri Lanka (CSSL) has announced plans for the 36th Annual National IT Conference (NITC 2018), which will be held in the capital of Colombo from 2-4 October this year.

The event will expand on the theme, “IT Changes Everything”, exploring technology-driven change across eight tracks of content:

∙ Social Implications of AI

∙ ICT and Sustainability

∙ Our Digital Lives

∙ Security in the Information Society: Visions and Perspectives

∙ This Changed Everything

∙ Privacy, Data Protection and Automation

∙ ICT and an Inclusive Society

∙ CxO Forum


Last year’s NITC was held in conjunction with the IFIP General Assembly and attracting record numbers of international guests and speakers to the event.

CSSL President, Yasas V. Abeywickrama said NITC – now in its 36th year – is the largest and longest-running ICT conference in Sri Lanka and is expected to be one of the most important regional events in 2018.
