Monday - Systemic view of ICT impacts and perspectives

We aim to build a foundational understanding of the different types of impacts related to ICT. By discussing environmental and social impacts, we want to encourage a reflection across disciplines on the role of ICT within our societies. This reflection will guide us through the week to rethink the future of ICT and research related to ICT within the Anthropocene.

Tuesday - Interdisciplinarity meets sustainable ICT for rethinking mobility

Developing knowledge about sustainable ICT is a multi-faceted issue and technology alone cannot be seen as the silver bullet. It requires different disciplines to work together and combine their domain-specific frameworks and methods in order to develop new knowledge on sustainable ICT. During this day, we are thus exploring the practice of inter- and transdisciplinarity in the context of ICT related to transforming mobility.

Wednesday - Between post-growth and degrowing science: how to research for the future?

During this day, we investigate the concept of post-growth and its impacts on how we practice science. We discuss how researchers can realign their research practices with their values. By way of fictional abstracts, participants will be able to explore futures of ICT research while questioning their purposes and uses in our societies. Towards this, we hear about the pluriverse concept and how it can inspire new kinds of research for a future within planetary boundaries.

Thursday - Building bridges for practicing transdisciplinarity

Transdisciplinarity implies always being in contact with different members of society: citizens, communities, companies, and institutions. Building bridges to ensure this dialogue among stakeholders is both essential and a real challenge. For this, we bring together a group of people from academia, industry, and public policy. We use their discussion and the concept of design justice as further input to our work in groups and engage in reflection.

Friday - Visions for the road ahead of ICT

On the last day, we take a historical perspective to gain a better understanding of technological trajectories and how they have influenced (and may influence) our societies. As a conclusion, we celebrate the vernissage of our collective museum displaying the different contributions produced over the week as well as key discussions and take-home messages. While enjoying refreshments, we have the ability to engage in stimulating conversations with fellow participants, speakers, and (very fun) organizers.
