The fast advancement of web, mobile and cloud computing technologies is bringing a new paradigm shift from conventional computing and communications technologies. The internet is rapidly evolving with increasingly sophisticated devices, platforms, APIs, applications, and web browsers. Adding to this is the regular advancement of software development languages and databases, thus making it increasingly difficult for ICT professionals to keep abreast of new developments.

The symposium will provide a platform that will allow experts, software developers, researchers and professionals in the industry to exchange their latest research results and development activities.
The primary objective is to:
- Showcase trends and new developments in the mobile, web and cloud sectors.
- Promote best practices in software development within the mobile, web and cloud sectors.
