Keynote speakers included distinguished scholars in the field of ICT: Dr Rammon Torrent, Dr Thomas Anderson and Dr Christian Langen, Dr Zahra al Rawahi, Dr Mark Neal, Dr Mangal Sain and Dr Ahmed Yusuf Abdelraheem. Tijan Kamal Ramahi from Maastricht University, Netherlands; Chandra Shekhar Jajware, Chief Information Officer, Khimji Ramdas Group, Muscat; Maqbool Ramadan Ibrahim al- Maimani, senior manager, IT and infrastructure, Oman Air and Abdullah al Rashdi, chief architect planner of Petroleum Development Oman conducted engaging and inspirational workshops on applied ICT.

The two-day conference brought together a diverse audience from several countries for networking and professional development opportunities. It helped to update participants on emerging trends, thereby providing a comprehensive vision of applied ICT. As many as 231 papers were received from 22 countries out of which 173 were accepted after blind review.
