Helsinki Distinguished Lecture Series on Future Information Technology

The Helsinki Distinguished Lecture Series on Future Information Technology is organized by HIIT, a joint research institute between University of Helsinki and Aalto University. The series was launched in 2012.

The focus of the seminar series is to highlight the research challenges and solutions faced by current and future information technology, as seen by the internationally leading experts in the field.

The vision of the series is to be approachable for audience that has scientific education not limiting to information technology, whilst at the same time providing information technology experts new viewpoints to their own discipline.

Venues alternate between University of Helsinki and Aalto University, the two host universities of HIIT.

The events are open to all and free of charge. Registration to the event (for logistic purposes) is requested via electronic form (see below).
