Programme

The theme for NetHui 2017 is Trust and Freedom on the Internet.

We're now in the process of building out the programme for NetHui 2017. Below is our programme so you can get a feel of how NetHui is run. There will be some changes to this over the next few weeks as we confirm sessions. Check back here for updates.
