2011 STC Expo has now passed by and we want to thank everyone for an enjoyable and interesting day! The participation this year was better than ever. This year's conference gave us examples of the exciting research from scientists at STC@MIUN, Acreo, and Fiber Optic Valley.
At this year's STC Expo, we listened to good lectures with examples of how modern technology can develop the community to have a presence over distance with the help of, among other, sensors and the Internet. We saw how the modern technology today has begun to be used around the world and the possibilities it opens up for further development of digital communities.
Many came to listen to interesting lectures and took part of the researchers' exhibitions.
