Information Technology Summit


A Regional Event Organized by the St. Louis RCGA’s Technology Gateway Council and Washington University in Conjunction with the 27th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2005)


Tuesday, 17 May 2005

Rose Garden Room [Floor Plan]

The St. Louis business community welcomed ICSE 2005 by providing an unprecedented level of financial support and made a strong commitment to a lasting and multifaceted impact by the conference on the future of the region. The centerpiece of this initiative is the inclusion of an Information Technology Summit into the conference program.

Organized jointly by the St. Louis RCGA’s Technology Gateway Council and Washington University, the goal of the Summit is to bring together 100 regional information technology (IT) leaders to discuss and debate the components of a regional IT economic development strategy--including workforce optimization, effective use of IT by St. Louis Corporations, and entrepreneurship.

The work of the Summit will be informed by an analysis of the region’s IT industry cluster completed by the Battelle Memorial Institute for the RCGA in 2002 and by the combined experience of regional IT leaders.

In 2002, the region’s business and civic leadership committed itself to a regional economic development strategy that focused on the development of five industry clusters: plant and medical sciences, IT, advanced manufacturing, financial services, and transportation/distribution. The Summit offers a unique opportunity to bring together experts and practitioners to discuss how best to develop the IT cluster.
