State of the Net is a (free) conference which tries to capture the state of art of the internet in Italy and in the world, considering its impact on our society. SotN is a key meeting for the italian industry and tech community, as it investigates dynamics and opportunities in the current digital scenario.
SotN’s third edition will be held on the 31st of May and 1st of June 2013, at the Molo IV area, in the old port of Trieste (Italy), one of the most extraordinary historical and cultural heritages in Europe. Previous editions took place in 2012 in Trieste and in 2008 in Udine.
We are proud to gather each year the most relevant opinion makers, entrepreneurs and journalists from Italy, Europe and the United States. The format of the conference is based on keynotes setting themes which are then discussed in open conversations with experts and all the attendees in the main room. A significant part of the conference program is held in english.
