Discourse is at the centre of this conference.
The conference will consist of two major activities, namely:
Instead of a typical “being-talked-at” conference, with a string of lectures interwoven with short Q&A’s and some coffee breaks, we really want to engage everyone. In terms of the speakers, this implies that there will be not a stream of semi-connected talks, rather we will let the speakers talk to each other during panel discussions. A panel section consists of a 30 min keynote, short introductions by the other panel members, and an extended part during which the panel discusses the topic at hand.
So what about the other participants? There will be ample opportunity for FAQs, and there will be ample time for socialising with the panel members and of course with other participants during during coffee breaks, lunch breaks, and our awesome social evening event on day one with an optional evening event on day two. We will also organise a world café to allow presenters, keynotes and delegates to share and hear each others philosophical ideas on the Internet of Things.
On the first night of the conference we will treat everyone to a social event: a dinner at a Victorian indoor shopping street (the shops will be staffed!).
