The Cyber Summit is Alberta’s two-day technology think tank. Taking place in Banff, Alberta, from September 24-25, 2014, the theme of this year’s Summit is Crowdsourcing Innovation.

Featuring Sue Gardner, the former executive director of Wikimedia (which runs Wikipedia), the event will look at how a crowdsourcing mentality can aid both small businesses AND researchers and educators.

Other sessions will look at:

  • The implications of net neutrality for Canadians
  • Saving time and back-end costs through shared services
  • What’s next for the internet’s infrastructure

The Cyber Summit will feature presentations and panel discussions by experts in: open media, digital tools that increase efficiency, networking, cloud computing, IT best-practices, as well as those bringing “maker” mindsets to the workplace.

In addition, it will offer in-depth workshops on: Data analysis and visualizations; Getting started with automation; Supporting research with the Science DMZ and Software Defined Networking; and Federated Identity for Alberta institutions.
