The eChallenges e-2012 Conference takes place in the Sana Lisboa Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal. This is the twenty-second in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission and hosted by national governments, which attracts delegates from leading commercial, government and research organisations around the world to share knowledge and experience, lessons learnt, good practice and innovation.
