conference theme

bridge
the gap

In an era where technology evolves at lightning speed, the divide between different disciplines within the tech industry can widen. Our goal is to close these gaps, fostering a space where all Designers, Researchers and Managers can come together, share insights, and innovate collaboratively."Bridge the Gap" is more than just a theme; it's our mission. We're dedicated to creating sessions, workshops, and discussions that encourage cross-disciplinary learning and partnership. Whether it's the gap between theory and practice, design and development, or innovation and application, WaysConf 2024 is the place to connect the dots.
