SMARTPLACES | 3rd annual conference – Speakers

    As the smARTplaces project comes to a close, we realised there are many stories to share about experiments, audiences, collaboration, failures and successes. For our third and final conference – SMARTPLACES – hosted by the Dortmunder U on March 5th 2020, we’re telling these stories by shining a spotlight on our colleagues from across the world.

    Over 20 speakers from 10 countries are confirmed for the conference. To secure your seat, book your ticket today: https://smartplacesconference2020.eventbrite.de
