The presentation will include a practical example illustrating the implementation of an electronic hiring system at the Oberta de Catalunya (UOC).
These Sessions have become a gathering point for high-ranking leaders in the public sector (politicians, people holding public office, etc.) and private sector (presidents, director generals, ICT managers, legal directors, etc.), and for all electronic signature users and sector professionals, with a view to discussing the main developments in this field and encouraging the expansion and awareness of electronic signatures as a basis for achieving a digital society based on trust.
The forth edition will include presentations with a wide variety of contents, all with a common denominator: the importance of security and electronic certification for the full development of the e-society.
The Sessions will also feature a debate forum specifically designed to promote and facilitate citizens' access to the online administration, so that they can undertake a wide variety of procedures and operations with the administration over the Internet and with maximum security and speed.
Last year, over 60 leading lecturers and 700 participants attended the event. This year the number of activities and attendees is expected to increase.
The acts and activities of the Sessions will be held at the Fira de Barcelona's conference centre and they will be organised by the Agència Catalana de Certificació - CATCert - in the framework of the Open Administration of Catalonia.
