Stream USA 2018 will begin at 1pm on Wednesday 14 November, finishing at 6pm on Friday 16 November. Over the course of the three-days, you’ll be able to take part in over 80 one-hour working groups known as “Discussions”. Previous topics include: Cyberleaks and the Fortune 500; Should AI come with a non-human health warning?; Learning to love GDPR; welcome to social identity, China Style; is it better to disrupt, or employ? And tax breaks for data? We have invited you to Stream USA, because you are a leader in your field. Over the coming weeks we’ll be in touch for your ideas for Discussion this year.

In the mornings and the evenings, we then run a variety of social and sporting activities; ranging from cooking dinner together, PPTX Karaoke for the consummate talkers, pre-release cinema screenings, filmmaking lessons, lessons in hacking, drone flying and hiking the local mountains. Read more about the activities here, or add your idea for a Discussion topic here.
