#Metro ON Line

During five days, in the AquaCity Poprad resort, participants will become familiar with the current products offered for passive and active part of the network, telecommunication devices, IoT and Industry 4.0 trends, as well as modern Smart services for residential customers and business customers alike. This year’s conference will be complemented by the views of security experts on various IT areas including the blockchain phenomenon, augmented and virtual reality, artificial inteligence and it´s application in practise. Representatives of local governments, broadband streaming services, global technology leaders, and television and telecommunication associations will take part in panel discussions and go through the hot topics of recent times.

To reinforce the motivation of conference participants to work for their goals, we have invited famous people from the field of sports, IT and art scene. This year is closely linked to the most watched event of the year – World Ice Hockey Championship 2019, as the conference is held under the auspices of the Slovak Ice Hockey Association.

Everyday “Metro Folk Party” is an ideal opportunity to deepen business relationships among partners, major clients and local governments. The final parts of the evenings will be spent in traditional spirit of informal networking, relaxation and entertainment in “SPORT” style.

Goal of the conference is to support education, motivation of young people and their active involvement in social challenges, as well as allowing them access to the ethical development of their talents and creativity. As a result, over 500 talented young athletes and IT students will get the opportunity to attend the conference for free and also open up topics that often our society does not accept with great interest. At the same time, we will financially support young talents from socially disadvantaged families, implementation of student projects in the (f)ITcubator in Poprad, save endangered species and develop ecotourism in the Tokaj wine region.

Estimated number of participants: 800

Participants from countries: Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Finland, Great Britain, USA, Ukraine, Austria, Canada, Turkey, Netherlands

Blockchain in self-government and cross-border data exchange

BlockChain is a technological innovation that has a transformative impact on official processes. The transformative nature of this evolution lies in the fact that official processes can be easily digitized, while the costs of integration and maintenance of such a platform remain at a fraction of the costs of original centralized solution. The European Union has also noticed the transformative nature of BlockChain as well as its potential to transform proactive citizen participation in the official process into a reactive one. The EU is currently validating this concept through the European Blockchain Infrastructure project, where Slovakia has also signed the European Blockchain Partnership Memorandum.

Let’s build together on the exceptional capabilities of people with autism spectrum disorders

The model of employing people with an autistic spectrum disorder in IT has been successfully enforced worldwide in recent years. It is no coincidence that positions for people with Asperger syndrome and high-function autism arise in this area of business, where programming, application testing, or data work perfectly matches the autistic cognitive profile. Let's take a look at the sense of detail, accuracy, or analytical thinking of people with PAS in the context of their potential employment in IT.

Ghost Hunting

Ghost Hunting   Cyber threats have evolved over the past 10 years resulting in crippling attacks against critical infrastructure to include shutting down power plants, manipulating the SWIFT system for multi million dollar heists, and jackpotting cryptocurrency exchanges. Nation states have engaged in sophisticated campaigns against their adversaries resulting in theft of intellectual property and disinformation campaigns. In those 10 years, the private sector and governments around the world have started to fight back with a series of public disclosures and legal actions. This presentation will discuss the implications of these defensive actions and what everyone must do to keep up with the dynamic actors behind these attacks.
