In 2018, it is organized in the heart of the 22@ technological district of Barcelona. The conference aims to serve as a catalyst in bringing together participants from academia and industry to help foster new connections and ideas among a heterogeneous community ranging from senior researchers to PhD students, or from senior executives to young startup entrepreneurs.
