As part of the SIRikt Festival, on 21 March 2012, Hotel Kompas in Kranjska Gora will host theARNES 2012 Conference, the main theme of which will be “20 YEARS OF THE INTERNET OF PEOPLE”. ARNES celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2012. In this time, we have witnessed extraordinary advances in internet infrastructure and services, with the future promising an “internet of things”. But technology makes it ever easier for people to cooperate, and it is this cooperation that gives rise to ever improving technology. We would therefore like to mark the anniversary by remembering that for 20 years we have been building a network of people, and not just wires. This conference will examine how we initially used the internet and what the future has in store, with particular emphasis on services that can help us in our activities even today.
The full conference programme can be found on the conference website. You can register for the conference from 1 February 2012 at prijava.sirikt.si. As we expect demand to be high, we recommend registering as soon as possible, as places are strictly limited.
