  • Foreword

    Innovation is fundamental for the development of new technologies, which will help to achieve social, economic and environmental sustainability. Academia’s long-term approach to research is a major contributor to innovation. It also has actively participated in the success of information and communication technologies (ICTs). These are some of the reasons why ITU seeks to strengthen its relationship with academia, the source of so much crucial research and so many innovative ideas.

  • Chair's message

    ITU initiated its Kaleidoscope series of conferences in 2008 to provide an exchange platform for researchers and experts on the standardization of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The ITU academia membership category, established in 2010, gave further impetus to the Kaleidoscope series. I would like to express my appreciation to ITU for selecting Chulalongkorn University as this year’s local partner.
