FOCUS – Register for our Belnet Networking Conference 2018!

A varied programme with a festive touch

Our annual Belnet Networking Conference (BNC) will take place on Thursday October 18th. We look forward to welcoming you again at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in the heart of Brussels. As usual, you can attend inspiring presentations and meet your colleagues in an informal setting. Moreover, this year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Belnet, which will certainly not go unnoticed!

Renowned speakers

This year we are happy to welcome a number of top speakers, including Inma Martinez. She is considered by 'Fortune' and 'Time' as one of the most important digital media strategists in the world. Inma started her career in the telecom industry and in the nineties she helped build one of the first AI systems. Since then, she has worked for numerous large technology companies and has built up extensive expertise in the field of data science, AI, IoT and product innovation.

After this, Luc De Raedt, expert in artificial intelligence and researcher at the Department of Computer Science at KU Leuven, presents the latest developments in machine learning. Finally, we will give you a glimpse behind the scenes of the organisation of the NATO summit in July 2018, in which Belnet cooperated by providing connectivity for the participants and press.

Meet the Belnet employees during the parallel sessions

Just like last year, you can take part in one of our parallel sessions in the afternoon. Each session is guided by a Belnet employee. Depending on your interests, you can register for a session on GDPR, a technical session about the Belnet network or a presentation of the cloud services that you can purchase via the European research network Géant.

Our clients speak up

After the parallel sessions, we give the floor to our customers. ULiège has been connected to our network since the early years of Belnet and will talk about the 25-year collaboration and the evolution of the use of the Belnet services.

Two crew members of the "UCL to Mars 2018" project then share their experience about this special mission. In a simulation environment in the United States, they conduct scientific experiments on the planet Mars.

We will conclude the BNC by celebrating with you the 25th anniversary of Belnet. Afterwards you can have a chat with your colleagues and visit the stands of our sponsors.
