ay itech yi: is iw Whi oo JERUSALEM, ISRAEL, 16-19 JANUARY, 1995 PROGRAM Le Dear Colleague, Itis a great honor for me to welcome you to the 29th Annual Convention of the Information Processing Association of Israel (IPA). A special welcome is extended to our guests from abroad, who have arrived to take part in the major event of the information technology community in Israel. The geo-political developments in the Middle-East and the constant technological advancements instil a new meaning and dimension to the main theme of the convention - The Borderless World. For the first time we join hands in our annual convention with colleagues from Arab countries as well as from South East Asia, Japan, the USA and Europe. Israel's achievements in the Hi-Tech industry in general, and in the field of software and communication in particular, have become a world renowned economic and technological success story. The 29th Annual Convention of IPA will discuss “hot" topics in technology. Experts from Israel and abroad will share with us their expertise and will expose us to future innovations and their effects on our society, economics, education and other aspects of our lives. Israel today can benefit from the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from all over the world. | truly believe that this convention will establish the ground and build the bridge to future cooperation and projects which will make Israel into one of the most important software centers and information technology based industries centers in the world. The comprehensive commercial exhibition and the social gatherings, will complement the rich professional sessions and will undoubtedly combine to provide an enjoyable and stimulating meeting.
