Meeting Description:

The term nation's civilization is one of the concepts that could
hardly be confied to a single definition. Many factors that are
involved in nation's culture such as long history cultural heritage
and scientific achievements do contribute to this term.

Nation's culture, with this comprehensive view, is required to deal,
and interact with the tremendous scientific progress in communication
and computer which is now referred to as informatics. Where does the
nation stand with respect to this scientific progress in research,
dialogue, industry and education, as well as other vital comprehensive
interaction processes?

The world is now witnessing a wave of epistemological development. Now
any one of us can communicate with as many people as he wants all over
the globe simultamously. Scientific discussions are held between
people in different countries mainly by clicking their browsers.Zarka
