ThingsCon Salons & Conferences

ThingsCon events come in two sizes: Smaller, more intimate ThingsCon Salons that often focus on one topic as well as larger, often multi-day ThingsCon Conferences.

Additionally, we organise a range of activities to advocate for the creation of a responsible IoT. This includes research, publications and field research trips like excursions to the hardware ecosystem of Shenzhen, China.
