About the International Research Conference On Emerging I.T. Trends in Asia and the Pacific

Time and again, the academic community has critiqued and analyzed the process of developing and implementing a customized detail oriented system for business entities. Successfully, with the empowering guidance of the information technology industry, information technology educators has shortened the gap between the academe and industry despite being in the confines of a class session. Capstone Projects is an attestation and visual proof that the bridge between academe and industry has been reduced.

However, as both education and industry synergizes, information technology rapidly changes and grows because of the need to INNOVATE. Technology Integration has become a fundamental process of innovation coupled with precision and efficiency. It has become therefore a need to collaborate ideas in order to overcome the roadblock brought about by technological advancement

7th International Research Conference

It is logically agreed and practiced in actual that information technology is the avenue of virtualization. The world took a moment of pause from what was the norm to the newly coined “new normal” when the COVID19 pandemic spread globally. It remains to say that the single threat to the existence of humans is the virus. Virtualization is key to provide continuity and augment the norm accustomed by society. Researchers, specifically in computing programs develop and implement systems designed to aid in combat the further spread of the pandemic and gain ground towards developing a vaccine.

The 7th Information Technology Research Conference was held on April 14, 2021. The Book of Proceedings can be downloaded here.
