Enablers For Future Twitter Conference: Creating Solutions for a Sustainable World

Thursday, August 27, 2020

The University of Oulu is organizing its third Twitter conference on 27.8.2020 starting at 1 pm Finnish time (UTC+3). The theme for the conference is “Enablers for Future Sustainable World” and the hashtag will be #eFuture2020.

In this conference the researchers of the University of Oulu present their research in two thematic areas - digital health and 6G - which build a foundation for solutions to enable a sustainable world for all of us.

A Twitter conference is a new way to organize a scientific conference where anyone, anywhere can participate with no need to travel. The conference will take place completely on Twitter as researchers tweet their presentations as 10-tweet chains. The presentations will be retweeted by the moderator account @OuluTC. To participate in the conference, follow @OuluTC on Twitter and the official conference hashtag #eFuture2020. You can follow the conference on Twitter even without a Twitter account via: https://twitter.com/OuluTc
