We have a brand new location: State of the Net 2016 will be held in the beautiful Tergeste space at Savoia Excelsior Palace, on the seafront of Riva Mandracchio in the historic city center. The Gulf of Trieste will be even more fascinating.

Today we’re also glad to introduce some of the outstanding speakers that will light up our panels and keynotes. Many others will come shortly.

  • Eliane Glaser is a writer, a BBC radio producer, a contributor for The Guardian and the New Statesman, an academic researcher at University of London and Bath Spa University. Her latest book Get Real was about how political and financial elites legitimise themselves by co-opting authenticity, people-power, and progressive ideals. Eliane is now writing a new book about the apparent death of politics, and how it can be revived.
  • Walter Quattrociocchi is coordinator of the CSSLab at the School for Advanced Studies in Lucca. His research is focused on the information diffusion in online social network platforms and their relation with the opinion evolution.
