The 2013 European Conference on ‘Tackling societal challenges with Social Collective Intelligence and ICT!’ is the final event of the Social-IST EU/FP7 project.

Organised by Sigma Orionis in collaboration with CREATE-NET and the University of Edinburgh, the conference aims to present the Social-IST main project outcomes (namely the White Paper on Research Challenges in Social Collective Intelligence and the Roadmap for FET Initiatives in Social Collective Intelligence) and to promote an open dialogue on how a new form of ICT can help us build a smarter society.

The event will bring together more than 20 speakers, who will debate with the public scientific challenges brought forward by Social Collective Intelligence, its impact on various application domains and the community support needed to foster its development.
