IRFD WFIS 2005  
   
WFIS 2005 is a major international conference that will address the challenges posed by the accelerating convergence between telecommunications, broadcasting multimedia and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) that are driving new products and services, and also ways of conducting business and commerce.
 
   
At the same time, commercial, social and professional opportunities are exploding as new markets open up to competition and foreign investment and participation. The modern world is undergoing a fundamental transformation as the industrial society that marked the 20th century rapidly gives way to the information society of the 21st century.
 
   
This dynamic process promises a fundamental change in all aspects of our lives, including knowledge dissemination, social interaction, economic and business practices, political engagement, media, education, health, leisure and entertainment.
 
   
While the information communication revolution is creating opportunities, it has also brought with it a digital divide phenomenon which has become one of the major problems of the contemporary world and is an integral part of the structure of inequality at all levels.
 
   
This conference must give special attention and find solutions to bridge this divide by connecting rural communities, marginalized urban communities, and integrating small and medium scale economic activities into the global marketplace.
 
   
Please join us in Tunis to address and discuss these challenges, and explore solutions to build a people-centred, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society, where everyone can create, access, utilize and share information and knowledge, enabling individuals, communities and peoples to achieve their full potential in promoting their sustainable development and improving their quality of life.
