The 23rd World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) takes place October 6 – 9, 2019, in Yerevan, Armenia at the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concert Complex. Over 2000 delegates from over 70 countries will enjoy future-shaping digital age discussions from over 10 special keynote speakers and 80 distinguished moderators and panelists.

Against a backdrop of the ancient city of Yerevan, with its delicious cuisine, historic culture and breathtaking natural views, attendees will join world-famous business leaders, tech gurus, and innovators to spark ideas and broaden professional networks, while finding potential partners and investors to support initiatives. WCIT is one of the largest & most prestigious global ICT events in the world, attracting some of the most powerful people in technology, business and politics.

The Power of Decentralization: Promise and Peril, this year’s theme, is designed to probe current thinking and change assumptions in a rapidly decentralizing world. While decentralization offers free-flowing, open and democratic networks and fosters prosperous economies, social systems, and international security, it also has a dark side. Apart from cloaking the activity of bad actors, it also perpetuates the problem of stove-piped development, a way in which technologies may be developed without enough raw intelligence or proper context.

WCIT 2019 will address decentralization within the context of industries and verticals like Artificial Intelligence with a Plenary session entitled the Rise of the Machines and Cybersecurity with a Plenary session entitled Black Swan on how Cybersecurity solutions help manage risk in an age of vulnerability. Top experts will cover important topics such as E-Health, Climate Change, Internet of Things (IoT), E-Commerce, Smart Cities, Education, FinTech, and more. For a full list of verticals and sessions, visit the WCIT 2019 website.
