Our understanding of human behaviour and the brain, dealing with the challenges of climate change and discovering new energy sources, analyzing social and cultural interaction, processing sensor data from billions of devices from transportation to health; digital technology cuts through all scientific disciplines.
At the National eScience Symposium, the organizers will discuss in different thematic sessions what this means for scientific research. From the humanities to physics and beyond.
SURFnet is involved in all the sessions on the Internet of Things. Presentations will be given by the University of Twente, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Things Network and others. Also on the agenda, alongside sessions on a variety of topics, are keynote speeches by Cecilia Aragon from the University of Washington, and Diederik Jekel, scientific journalist.
