A Message From The TC8 Chair

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), Technical Committee (TC 8), Information Systems (IS) website. We are honored that you are interested in IFIP TC 8.

IFIP was established in 1960 under the auspices of the United Nations UNESCO. TC 8 was formed in 1976. Since then, many of the luminaries and great leaders of IS have held leadership positions in TC 8 and its Working Groups (WGs). Where TC 8 is today is a testament to their vision and work. We stand on their shoulders.

The TC8 WGs have been developing activities that promote the sharing of knowledge in specialized areas of Information Systems. To know the research of our groups and the events defined for 2019 we encourage you to consult our events page for an integrated view.

For more information please visit the WGs' websites at:
