The event is part of a digital festival Internet Week Denmark and is held in cooperation with Aarhus Kommune and the innovation network InfinIT.

We start off with a joint opening session and wrap up the day together. In between, the conference is divided into two tracks: one diving into working with IoT in companies and start-ups and the other one focusing on the possibilities and societal challenges for IoT in cities and communities.

This event is also setting the scene for IoT Week 2019 taking place in Aarhus 17-21 June.
