37th Annual Convention of Computer Society of India: 29th - 31st October 2002
JANASTU, the social development unit of Servelots had a stall at the Computer Society of India's 37th annual convention. Dr. T.B. Dinesh also presented a paper on "Communities Managing Community Knowledge" at the convention.
The CSI one of the largest events in the Indian IT calendars and is attended by Corporate bodies, Academicians, developers and students. For Janastu it was an ideal opportunity to demonstrate how Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be demystified for underserved communities.
The stall, which had the look and feel of a village, was armed with demos that showcased how communities can create their own ICT solutions.
We would like to thank Nihilent Technologies for sponsoring the stall and Rose for putting us in touch with Nihilent.
