CTTE & FITCE joint congress
Congress is over, see you again next time!



FITCE.be is the forum for digital professionals where experts from different backgrounds meet in an informal atmosphere. It is the platform that allows you and/or your company to bring forward, exchange or gain insights in new developments.
The activities generally consist of one or more lectures combined with either a lunch or a reception to stimulate interaction. The main event of the year is the congress where all FITCE associations of the European Union meet for several days of high quality exposés and social activities
FITCE.be is part of the European federation FITCE Europe. Every year, one national FITCE organisation is responsible for the organisation of the international congress, this year is the 58th edition.


CTTE is the major international event for the presentation of original and fundamental concepts and studies in the field of telecom, internet and media techno-economics. It also serves as a forum for communication among researchers and practitioners working in a wide variety of scientific areas with a common interest in improving techno-economics and advanced telecommunications internet and media services.
This year, we are celebrating the 10th edition of the CTTE conference.

Why Ghent...

Because Lonely Planet has called our city “Europe’s best kept secret” and a must see destination, and more recently “a city small enough to feel cosy but big enough to stay vibrant”.

Because National Geographic Traveler Magazine has listed our city as the most authentic historic city in the world and full of life.

Because you must witness with your own eyes what Napoleon and the mysterious thief of “the Just Judges” panel already knew: The Mystic Lamb really is key to European art history.

Because Ghent is at the crossroads of the most important inland waterways in Flanders.

Because the city comes to life again after sunset.

And of course because you like to get off the beaten track.
