I am pleased to announce that the Hong Kong International Computer Conference 2020 (HKICC2020) will be held from 2nd to 3rd November 2020 and it will be the first ever online event since its launching in 1978 under the current “New Normal”. Theme of the conference this year is "Digital Lifestyle in the New Decade".

2020 has proven to be an eventful start of a new decade. Many in the industry are now saying COVID-19 is the biggest catalyst of digital transformation. It is, therefore, important for the practitioners of the IT industry to better equip with the latest emerging technologies related to digital transformation that will impact many areas of our lifestyle in this digital era.

HKICC this year is to highlight the impacts on day-to-day life and work of digital transformation for different industries on how digital transformation is impacting their day-to-day life and work. This conference mainly focuses on four major areas including “Digital Life: everything-as-a-service”, “Digital Workplace: access from everywhere”, “Digital Commerce: bespoke services at mass scale” and “Digital Future: the smart devices of tomorrow”.

As Hong Kong has been positioned as the innovation center in The Greater Bay Area, I believe the technology industry in Hong Kong can also play a much active role in grasping the new opportunities from Shenzhen as well as the Greater Bay Area, especially in research and development for the digital transformation solutions to tap this up and coming market with a population of over 72 million people. Thus, the conference is timely held.

World class technology experts, business leaders, academics and policy makers will gather and exchange their insights, and I believe the attendees will be benefited enormously.

I look forward to meeting you online at the Hong Kong International Computer Conference 2020.

本人欣然宣佈,香港國際電腦會議2020 (HKICC2020) 將於今年11月2日至3日在網上舉行,今年是該項盛事由1978年以來,首度由於「新常態」而轉為以網上形式主辦,而本年的主題為「新世代數碼生活」。

2020是本世紀二十年代一個重要的開端年。現在,許多業內人士都在述說,新型冠狀病毒是數碼化轉型的最大倡導者。身處數碼年代,數碼化轉型將對人類生活多個領域,均會產生重大影響;因此,對IT行業從業員而言,能更好地配備數碼化轉型的最新訊息,至為重要。

是次香港國際電腦會議的焦點,在於突出數碼轉型對各行各業在日常生活與商業運作上的重大影響,並就「數碼生活」、「數碼工作場所」、「數碼業務」及「數碼未來」等四大範疇進行探討。

粵港澳大灣區的人口總數超過七千二百萬人,市場發展日益蓬勃,而香港在大灣區內,亦被定位為創科中心;本人相信,香港的科技業界,應掌握深圳以至整個大灣區帶來的新發展機會,特別在數碼轉型的方案研發方面。香港國際電腦會議的舉行,可謂正當其時。

世界級的資訊及通訊科技專家、商界領袖、學者及政府管理階層人士將雲集交流,並就各議題交換其真知灼見,相信將令出席者獲益良多。

希望能在網上與你在香港國際電腦會議2020會面。多謝各位。

The Hong Kong International Computer Conference (HKICC) has been organised by the Hong Kong Computer Society (HKCS) annually since 1978. The main objective is to bring together IT professionals, and business and government leaders from all over the world to explore opportunities that information technology can offer, and to share their successes and valuable insight. The conference has always been a significant event in the IT industry. In the past year, it has attracted over 48 prominent speakers and over 800 delegates participating in the conference. More than 1,000 delegates are expected to attend the HKICC online conference this year, representing a variety of local and overseas public and private organisations.

The theme of this year is "Digital Lifestyle in the New Decade". Since the beginning of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all walks of life in Hong Kong. Although the process and formats of this year's conference are different from those of the past, under the "new normal", we can make better use of technology and truly achieve "Digital Lifestyle in the New Decade” leveraging the “Digital Solutions in the New Decade”.

It is an honour to invite experts from different areas as our speakers and gain inspiration and opportunities by sharing their vision and wisdom. Participants will be able to have a better understanding of the development potential of Digital Transformation under the current “New Normal”. I am sure you will be able to get lots of valuable insights and inspirational ideas.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Hong Kong International Computer Conference a success. Meanwhile, I would like to thank all the sponsors for their generous support, as well as our keynote speakers, the joint efforts of the members of the Organising Committee, and the administration of the Secretariat of HKCS. I truly appreciate your continuous support and your contribution will definitely help us develop and succeed in future endeavors.

More importantly, I am delighted to have you all with us online to participate and share in Hong Kong International Computer Conference 2020. Look forwards to seeing you.
