[ News, Society, April 13 2008] Seoul to host 2009 assembly on news dissemination technology

Korea will host next year's annual assembly of the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) on technical standards for the dissemination of news by news organizations, the Korea NewsML Forum said Sunday (Apr. 13).

The decision was made at a meeting Saturday of executives of the IPTC secretariat based in Windsor, United Kingdom. The IPTC is a consortium of 68 news media across the world organized for the development of news-related technology, the forum said.

Korea will be the second Asian country to host the assembly after Japan.

The forum hoped that the Seoul assembly would help boost the information technology of Korea in the world's news industry.
