InfoClub 2007 --a national information technology forum organized by Cuba's Youth Computer Club movement-- kicks off Wednesday at the Central Computation Hall in Havana.

Some 150 of 1,700 works that were entered in local competitions across the island last year will be competing for the grand prize, while other smaller awards will be given in various categories such as educational software and websites design.

Seminars on multimedia communication, videogame software, information technology (IT) access for people with disabilities and seniors will be included on the agenda of the biennial event occurring for the ninth time.

The forum, which concludes Thursday, will also feature works by 16 children, a group actively encouraged to participate in IT development in Cuba.

According to the Youth Computer Club National Director Raul Van Troi Navarro Martinez, this event will also commemorate the 20th anniversary of island IT institutions, which have graduated close to 1.2 million people in basic courses since their creation in 1987.
