This year symposium conference is twofold!

November 28th, the first conference day, is a traditional, planned in advance conference with the agenda featuring keynotes, presentations and round tables prepared by HbbTV MEWG on the basis of the Call-for-Speakers and the topics of interest to our community. The speakers include high-level executives and industry experts from across the HbbTV community and the wider TV market. Zero effort, relax and enjoy it!

Coming after the first day of the Symposium, the second day “unconference” will provide an opportunity to explore the topics from day one in more depth or to consider other questions and challenges in sessions proposed and created by the conference participants. Be prepared, we need you!
