The 2020 edition of Luxembourg Internet Days, which will take the form of a three-day web event, will focus on potential crises that could affect networks and the cloud.

In addition to the format (digital), LU-CIX has adapted the content of this year's Luxembourg Internet Days to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. In an unprecedented but pragmatic way, the even will focus on potential crises that could impact networks and the cloud. The digital format will allow the targeted topics to be spread over six two-hour sessions. All the features of the event will be replicated on the digital platform and all visitors will have access from 17 to 19 November 2020. Experts will give presentations and lead round tables, speaking from around the world and sharing live with the audience about crisis scenarios, from national or international cybersecurity threats to major political challenges, which can impact networks and the cloud worldwide. 

In 2020, it is not just one country, but the whole of Europe that will be put in the spotlight at Luxembourg Internet Days, through the many entities that are leading the fight against cyber threats as well as standardisation, among other things. From the European Commission to ENISA or Digital SME Europe, everyone will have the opportunity to get to know each other and exchange ideas to continue building trust and cyber security in Europe.

Event partners will also be offering workshops and presentations to continue the exchange and help virtual visitors to project themselves into a world where new technologies are turning the tables. Dozens of virtual stands and a networking tool will be made available to enable everyone, via a chat and video conferencing tool, to make new encounters, to resume or maintain contact, almost as before.

A lot of companies have confirmed their commitment to the event, including Diamond Sponsors BCE and Luxnetwork, along with major event partners the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce, the Ministry of the Economy, the Department of Media, Telecommunications and Digital Policy, Cybersecurity Luxembourg and the European Commission. 

For the third consecutive year, the LUxembourg Network Operator Group (LUNOG) Conference will take place during Luxembourg Internet Days. This highly targeted event aims to share news and developments between experts from networks and the telecoms sector, but also to strengthen the links between members of this community who often work in the shadows. 

Frédérique Ulrich, organiser of Luxembourg Internet Days, commented: "Since May, we have been working hard to completely redesign our event because we wanted to continue to support our sector, which is particularly under pressure in these troubled times, while limiting the risk of the pandemic spreading through its ranks". She added: "Thanks to the professional platform developed by Swapcard, everyone will be able to create their own 'à la carte' programme according to their availability and interests, visit the virtual booths and contact the other attendees or exhibitors to organise meetings from their smartphone, tablet or laptop and enjoy the full experience of the Luxembourg Internet Days - the 2020 way". 

Free online registration will allow each registered attendee to contact as many people as they wish, even before the event opens, consult the programme and register for the various sessions to attend live or watch the “replay”. The sessions will be in English with French subtitles.
