ROUNDTABLE

As part of the CAADRIA 2024 conference, Roundtable Conversations will be held. Each of these events is coordinated by a Roundtable Convenor, who has defined a session topic and invited three or four international Guest Speakers to join him/her in a round table discussion.

Following a short introductory presentation by the Convenor, each Speaker will be asked to respond through a presentation and a conversation.

The aim is to cover a broad range of topics that are complementary to the Keynote Lectures and deserve in-depth discussion in a more open-ended format.
