ThingsCon Salon Copenhagen aims to create a space for exploration and discussion of ethics and responsibility in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). Such reflections are crucial for ensuring a future we want to live in. The event brings together innovators and thinkers from Sweden, Denmark and elsewhere in Europe to share experiences in an informal discussion with the participants. The event is free of charge (register here) and intended for designers, developers and other professionals with a keen interest in IoT.

ThingsCon is Europe’s leading conference about the future of hardware, connected devices and Internet of Things. Started in Berlin it has grown into a global community of likeminded practitioners around the Internet of Things and new hardware.
