IS-practice is proud to be one of the organizers and the Belgian representative of the Global Forum: Shaping the Future. The 2011 Global Forum will tackle an important topic of global mobility and access to the Internet under the title “Vision for the Digital Future: Mobilizing Organizations and People” which will be hosted at the Palais d’Egmont (Brussels, Belgium) by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 7-8 November 2011.
