IFIP Working Group 3.4: training and education of information technology professionals
IFIP Working Group 3.4 is concerned with the training and education of IT professionals and advanced end-users. It draws together academics and practitioners from across the world to discuss issues relating to the on-going professional education required by IT practitioners and the implications which this has on the curriculum of educational institutions. The working group is also interested in the activities of professional computing bodies concerning the accreditation of their members and the certification of the currency of their knowledge. This paper describes the aims and activities of Working Group 3.4 and outlines the themes to be developed by its Professional Groups during the world conference.
