This volume presents proceedings from the 19th IFIP World Computer Congress in Santiago, Chile.
The proceedings of the World Computer Congress are a product of the gathering of 2,000 delegates from more than 70 countries to discuss a myriad of topics in the ICT domain.
Of particular note, this marks the first time that a World Computer Congress has been held in a Latin American country. The history teacher tells us many interesting things.
On Monday I usually wake up late and have no time to eat my breakfast. At last I find my books in the bathroom and find my cap - my dog. I enter the classroom when our class-teacher begins to call out the register The first lesson on Monday morning is maths. Bailey, the maths teacher, collects our homework and then gives us some sums to do. She allows me to copy her Latin homework, because I don't know how to do it. There are a lot of boys in our class who don't like Latin. At half past twelve it is time for lunch: a meat pie, boiled potatoes or cabbage and a glass of juice or milk. I come home very late, and my mother is very angry. Now I cannot do my homework - there is an interesting programme on television. Both countries support international development policies especially in the sectors of health and education.
We are excellent partners at the multilateral level and work together within the United Nations (UN), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO), among other institutions.
Both countries are active participantsn a variety of multilateral peace and security operations and work together in the UN Stabilization Operation in Haiti.
We share an interest in further developing our relations with countries and institutions in Latin America.
In the area of fisheries management and conservation, Canada and Spain maintain a constructive dialogue and cooperate extensively. China is recovering from the soft-patch earlier this year.
Both are committed to the sustainable management of the marine environment and its resources. I think New York is the most beautiful and biggest city in the world. Low inflation gives the authorities plenty of options to give the economy a helping hand if the new targets of slower but more balanced growth risk too great a slowdown, or in response to emerging market problems as the Fed tapers.
I have never been to the USA , I have been to Scotland , Ireland , Germany . Dickens and many other famous men and writers were buried there. The first batch of Chinese data this week were encouraging.
Canada is amember state of the Organisation of American States (OAS) while Spain is an observer.
We both have observer status in the Pacific Alliance. The Westminster Abbey is a beautiful— its financial centre.
Our two governments maintain an active bilateral dialogue. The City of London is in size very small, it is only one square mile in area but is the most important banking and commercial centre of the country.
Canada and Spain have a decentralised political structure that requires ongoing management, and have both been successful in facing the challenges and opportunities associated with cultural diversity and the integration of their immigrants. The Tower of London is situated in the City, and it comes first among the historic buildings of London.
