ITC-2019 is a flagship event of the Indian Technology Congress Association (ITCA), a dedicated association for technologists focused on facilitating collaboration between professionals from the industry, R&D laboratories, government, academic institutions and professional bodies. Over the years, ITC has emerged as a leading forum for the confluence of thought leaders in technology, sciences and businesses working on deploying technology-intensive solutions for contemporary challenges.
