Over 300 participants around Mindanao–professionals, educators, and students—came to MSU-IIT to attend this year’s computing fair.

“The aim of having an ICCF is to really make the ICT arena vibrant in Mindanao” SCS Dean Alquine Roy F. Taculin said.

In the opening program, the Iligan City Government, which sponsored the event, was represented by Arnold A. Garbanzos of the Iligan Investment, Incentive, and Promotion. Garbanzos expressed plans in turning Iligan City into an ICT hub in Mindanao, especially with IIT.
