This year’s International Student Summit (ISS) is taking place at The University of Nottingham UK campus from Monday 3 - Friday 7 April and we’re looking for student delegates to participate in the week-long conference.
The ISS is an annual, student-led collaborative event between UoN’s UK, China and Malaysia campuses. This year’s theme is ‘The Global Student in a Technology Age’ and delegates will have the chance to speak with industry leaders and debate the future of our world.
The event will culminate in a Model United Nations-style conference with cross-cultural perspectives on the following topics:
- Where are we headed? Exploring the impact of developing online technologies on the wider world with references to topics such as the Internet of Things, the Internet of Value, cryptocurrencies, digital innovation and e-governance.
- Are we safe? Exploring threats to public and private security posed by developing technologies by analysing issues such as social networking, big data, Wikileaks/the National Security Agency, global cyber security, cyberterrorism, cyberpeace, privacy, artificial intelligence and humanity 2.0.
- How will we learn? Exploring the educational institutions and models of the future by exploring themes such as virtual learning environments, distance environments, massive open online courses, peer to peer learning, digital tools and institutional change.
- How will we work? Exploring the future of work and volunteering.
The conference will feature a short trip to York and a formal International Ball dinner, free of charge.
All students are invited to apply as a delegate via the link below. Applications are open until 11:59pm, Sunday 26 March.
