The 7th Annual Commonwealth of Virginia's Information Technology Symposium (COVITS 2005) will take place September 18-20, 2005, at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.

 

The symposium theme, "The Promise of Digital Government," will highlight the leading role that technology plays in making governments more responsive, citizens and societies safer, education more pervasive, and healthcare more accessible. COVITS 2005 is nationally recognized as an important event, where industry solutions meet government requirements. The challenges facing governments and education and the solutions offered by the private sector will be examined.

 

COVITS 2005 will continue its emphasis on providing outstanding speakers and quality networking opportunities for attendees. In addition to longer exhibit hall hours and larger exhibit spaces, this year the program will feature workshops where twelve senior level officials from state and local governments, plus higher education and k-12 schools, will describe their need for technical and consulting assistance from the private sector.
