The COVID-19 health crisis has dramatically changed global trends and markets at an unprecedented rate, and in some cases completely transformed them. There is no doubt that the measures taken by governments around the world to combat the health crisis have accelerated the digital transformation. Nevertheless, many of the long-term consequences of this acceleration are not yet known.
To explore these implications and their effects, a conference will be held. The conference is for all who are interested in the five aforementioned tracks and aims to make the participant aware of the developments in these various fields. Due to COVID-19 a lot has changed within these topics. During the conference these changes are analyzed and translated into opportunities for the future. The goal is to make people more conscious about what is happening right now and about what might happen in the future. Furthermore, the conference is a great platform to meet and come in (online) contact with researchers, experts, professionals and students working in, or interested in the areas that are affected by COVID-19 and digital transformation.
