The US-Russia IT Forum is a business-like prelude to the US-Russian Technology Symposium which is being arranged at Stanford University on January 28-30, 2004.

The Symposium itself is being organized by the Stanford University with participation of the Russian Ministry of Industry, Science and Technology and Ministry of Economic Development and trade.

The IT Forum is to be held just on the eve of the Symposium in order to bring a commercial vector into such an important political event in the sphere of High-Tech as the Stanford Symposium. The recommendations generated by the commercial participants of the IT Forum will surely have a very positive impact on decisions of the overall Symposium as they will cover the commercialization aspects of the whole process of implementation of High-Tech in the IT.
