Stockholm Hub

Hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden

This year we had the pleasure of collaborating on an innovative pilot initiative with KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm to host a Nordic Hub of the SCORAI 2020 Conference along with the Boston hub hosted by Northeastern University.

Due to disruptions and risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving the conference to an all online remote program. We are grateful to have the opportunity to transition to a fully digital conference format that will reduce our collective consumption while preserving vitally important sharing of ideas. The conference sessions will be accessible to all who register – all that is needed is access to high-speed internet connection. We are developing creative ideas to preserve a sense of open discourse and celebration of community as we move to a virtual format.

“How do you make a conference digital, but more than just a videocall?

SCORAI 2020 aims to be a pilot project that demonstrates how to make a scientific conference digital, lowering the number of flights for participants (especially intercontinental), but keeping the social and networking aspects of a conference. In addition to the scientific presentations both in plenary and parallel sessions, we aim to have interactive message boards and connected coffee breaks, enabling social interaction even in a time of a physical distancing.
