What to expect at STIA+2014
The STIA+2014 conference will be a container of experiments, planned to test our hypothesis about how to create conferences that are vibrant, useful and sustainable for our communities.
- Moving Keynotes: STIA+2014 will showcase some of the most prestigious and memorable keynote speakers that have engaged previous STIA audiences. Victor Garcia has graciously offered to be our opening Keynote speaker!
- Open Space: Most of the speakers and topics will be selected by the attendees using Open Space technology.
- Breathing Space: STIA+2014 will have a sustainable pace. We will have a 30 minute break between each session for debriefing and relaxation. There will be no need to rush between sessions and meeting rooms. This conference will promote the enjoyment of networking and afford attendees the time to take in the outside nature.
