The discussion will be joined by Cormac Callanan, CEO of Aconite Internet Solutions from Ireland, and Nevena Ružić, assistant to the general secretary of the office of the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection.

The second block is titled “Digital Heritage” and will focus on digitalisation in culture and science, with moderator Tamara Vučenović PhD. Before the panel discussion, an introductory talk will be given by Matjaž Filo, manager of the IT sector at the University of Ljubljana Faculty of Social Sciences. Joining the debate will also be Adam Sofronijević PhD, deputy director of the Svetozar Marković University Library in Belgrade, and Nikola Božić, programme director of the Petnica Science Centre.

The third block, titled “Online Business”, will be moderated by Radomir Lale Marković, who will also be the main host of the Conference.
