While we work on the program you may view the program from the last event to get an idea of what it may be like

Think Tank Session

 

We invite you to send any topics you wish discussed in an open floor format in our World Café session "Think Tank". Please send your ideas before 30th April. The scientific program committee will prepare the best topics in advance and crowdsource via live polling the topics to discuss at the beginning of this session. YOU, vote the topics to discuss. This will be your opportunity to discuss those burning issues, hear solutions from your peers, be exposed to a range of perspectives and experience for yourself a fully immersive conference session format. So make sure you come with your innovation and problem-solvers hat on!
