The European Information Technology Conference (EITC) is a major event in the European information technologies (IT) calendar. This year, EITC is scheduled to take place on 27-29 November in Brussels. Its main theme will be "Managing change" and it will be complemented by an exhibition that will run concurrently at the Palais de Congres in Brussels. It is organized by DG III (Industry) of the European Commission.

The conference will give business leaders, public administrators, researchers and individual citizens the opportunity to explore the latest information technologies, and to debate the wider issues and future directions of the information society.

The first part of the conference is devoted to strategic technological issues, and provides a platform for the exchange of information on leading-edge technologies and on the Information Technologies R&D programme. The second part addresses broader issues relating to the emergence of the information society, taking as its focus the application of IT across industrial sectors.

The conference culminates in a high-level IT Forum involving eminent political and industrial leaders.

The exhibition will be designed to illustrate the developments of the information society, highlighting the opportunities, benefits and new working practices which are associated with these developments. It will focus on three different environments: IT for individuals, IT for enterprises, and IT for the public sector.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to "surf" on the World Wide Web, accessing in particular a number of demonstrations illustrating the results produced by IT projects.

Commissioner Bangemann will host the presentation of the "IT European Awards" on the afternoon of 29 November.
