|ICA Study Groups|
Between conferences, ICA commissions international Study Groups to consider topics of special interest. Six to nine members normally form a Study Group. They are selected for the variety of their experiences and to represent different areas of ICT. Non-lCT members are sometimes considered depending on the topic to be studied. Normally, Study Groups emphasize policy and management issues related to the use of ICT resources by national governments. They are active for up to two years, or less for "fast-track" analysis, and prepare a formal report describing the results of research conducted across member countries. Findings and recommendations are included in these reports which are presented during the annual conference, then published by the Council on its web site.
Results of study groups are made available to members and associates on request and some examples of Study Group Reports include:
