Imagine 18 – Technology bridging Generations

Digitization is changing our everyday life at a tremendously fast pace, be it in economics, ecology, medicine, technology or in dealing with our social contacts. In Information and Communication Technology (ICT), we have never been as close to the future as we are now. How do you imagine the digital future? What ideas, wishes and dreams inspire your creativity to develop breakthrough innovations? IMAGINE18 is a unique opportunity to make contacts, exchange ideas and be inspired in the field of ICT.

IMAGINE is an event of the Austrian ICT-Community and aims to gather top Austrian research achievements. Interactive and informative elements open up fascinating new perspectives on the world of Information and Communication technology. As part of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the IMAGINE18 was part of ICT 2018: Imagine Digital - Connect Europe.

The conference series IMAGINE is the luminary of the information and communication technology of the future. Because it really connects Europe. This year researchers, industry professionals, policy makers and students from all European countries and different generations have met and spent exciting days with experts in the ICT field from 4 to 6 December 2018. In addition, there was the opportunity for students to participate in workshops and an idea marathon.

The Imagine18 conference track, student workshops and the idea marathon have followed the overall theme of “Technologies bridging Generations”: Top level ICT experts and students have jointly reflected on ideas and scenarios of future developments in ICT. Both adult experts and students were encouraged to submit their own ideas.
