Today we had a press briefing with the top brass of the Computer Society Of Zimbabwe, Harare Chapter anchored by one of the past President Mr Lawrence Gudza, officially speaking on their annual upcoming Summer School.
This year`s summer school will be held at Elephant Hills hotel, Victoria falls on the 14th and 15th of November and delegates are expected to arrive on the 13.
Amongst the key speakers is Mr Strous of IFIP International Federation of Information Processes President, which is the world body for Computer Societies and a media mogul, the Alpha Media Holding founder, Mr Trevor Ncube, to be speaking on the changing media trends.
High on the agenda , Mr Gudza said we have “a debate of the last day where the house will debate whether the internet and computers should be controlled or not by the government.”
TechnoMag is also worried about the noun that has carried the brand for more than 3 decades, the “Computer Society” seem to only cover the computer or its hardware affiliated products yet ICTs today are much bigger than the limiting name.
When asked about the matter, Mr Lawrence Gudza admitted and highlighted that this will be amongst their topical issues, whether or not they need to realign their name for the sake of relevance to current technological trends.
Invited to the event are ICT practitioners, decision makers in commerce, industry, local and central government, Agriculture, health and the Academia amongst others.
