The World Information Technology Forum (WITFOR) was initiated by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and has been organized by IFIP periodically since 2003 in cooperation with several stakeholders in the host country. So far WITFOR has been held in Lithuania, in 2003; in Botswana, in 2005; in Ethiopia in 2007; in Vietnam in 2009 and in India, in 2012.
