More than knowledge!
In addition to all the sessions at the conference, numerous other activities are happening to engage the body as well as the mind.
Monday 5th: Kallbadhuset sauna, swim, dinner
The best way we know how to kick off the conference?
By plunging into the frosty Baltic and then warming back up in the sauna while enjoying a truly magnificent sunset view. It awakens the senses and quiets the mind. Follow this by dinner in a charming restaurant floating on the sea.

Rebellious Late Evening Keynote!
The Rebels Come Out Online - What if the Internet is something much bigger than we think? Alexander Bard is one of the world's leading internet social theorists and the author of "The Futurica Trilogy" together with Jan Söderqvist. In this speech he will elaborate on the fact that out of all the codes and other digital information we stuff our machines with, something much more profound, something sentient, is emerging. The internet controls us, and possesses opur imagination and worldview, rather than the other way round.
