The main aim of this event is to enable the best Lithuanian information technology (IT) researchers and practitioners to meet with their colleagues from abroad, share their latest research findings and introduce them to the international scientific community. In 2020, the promotion and development of interdisciplinary research remains a priority, emphasizing the combination of social and IT needs in the context of an information, knowledge-based society. Real examples show that this traditional KTU scientific event encourages European and global scientists to collaborate with Lithuanian scientists while seeking opportunities for joint science and technology development activities.
