A bit of history

I.T. Works was founded in 1992 by ir. Patrick Van Renterghem. He graduated from the University of Ghent (Belgium) in 1984 as a civil engineer with a specialization in electronics and computer science. From 1984 to 1992, Patrick did research at the Automatic Control Laboratory of that University in the field of parallel processing and multiprocessing, doing both hardware and software developments in the fields of neural networks, image processing, machine-to-machine interfaces and pattern recognition. He presented his research at many conferences worldwide, and published various articles in the trade press. From 1985 till 1992, he was a successful facilitator of events and seminars for the BIRA (the Belgian Institute for Automatic Control), and he was a Chairman of the Working Party DTCS (Digital Techniques and Computer Systems) of the BIRA.

Since 1992, I.T. Works has become the leading organizer of technical and business IT seminars.
