This document contains the text of 37 papers presented at the international forum and conference on information Technology for Training and Education (ITTE). The conference focused attention on the contribution that information technology can make to training, retraining and education. In particular, the forum concentrated on the following: (1) information technology and specialist training; (2) technical training in postsecondary education; (3) perspectives on large scale implementations of information technology for training and education; (4) information technology and industrial training; and (5) information technology and the future. Each paper provides a distinct view of some aspect of information technology and training and/or education. These views range from using information technology to simulate dangerous conditions encountered while learning how to operate a power station, to using information technologies to train large numbers of staff in a variety of situations, to using information technology to create awareness about itself so that a large organization can move to policy development and large scale adoption of the technology. Most of the papers include their own reference list and abstract. International viewpoints were brought to the conference by speakers from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. (DB)
