This is a new, innovative style for our conferences. In contrast to the classical style of a conference, round tables allows for interaction between participants, opening the possibility for the exchange of thoughts and experience. Every table is hosted by an expert of the given field, and every table is indulged with a deep discussion on the topic of Smart City. The dynamic idea allows for integration and networking between participants.
The block is split into two 45-minute rounds. The participants select a table for each of the rounds. After the time expires, the participants may change tables.
