ICITA 2009 held in Hanoi, a wonderful city of 1000 years of age
Welcome to the 6th International Conference on Information Technology and Applications, which is held this year for the first time in Vietnam.
The conference is an annual event and is recognized as one of the major series of conferences in information technology (IT). This is a great pleasure and honour for us, from Bac Ha International University, and for Vietnam Radio and Electronic Association to host this conference this year.
I know that many of you have traveled from quite a distance and I¡¯d like to thank our distinguished guests from Japan, Australia, China, Macao, United States, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, France, Korea, Italy, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Germany, Taiwan, Philippines, Argentina, Pakistan, and Canada.
ICITA with its content on ICT fits in quite neatly to the global context of Vietnam. In fact, Information Technology is considered by the Government of Vietnam as one of the most important driving forces for economic development and social advancement. It strengthens the country¡¯s material, intellectual and spiritual growth, promotes the reform process, speeds up the modernization of economic sectors, and empowers the competitiveness of business. We do hope that ICITA will be useful not only for policy makers in this beautiful country, but also contributes to stimulate young researchers in Vietnam to pursue their works with a new and positive spirit.
ICITA continues to retain its tradition of high quality conference and will open up an opportunity for academics and industrial professionals worldwide to exchange their knowledge of the state-of-the-art research and development in information technology and applications, and to establish and extend professional networks.
To all of you, thank you for being here; welcome and enjoy the conference!
