UCD Netsoc have been given the honour of organising SISTEM 2020, a tech conference that is student run with the aim of allowing students and tech professionals to link up in a casual environment.

The SISTEM conference, which is in its’ third year of running, is a tech event run by computing societies from prolific colleges such as Trinity, DCU, UCC and UCD among others. It’s an opportunity for students who are interested and ambitious in the computing and technical field to mingle with professionals and create links.

Oisín Quinn from the Netsoc organising committee told us: “The event features speakers from the tech industry, thought provoking panels, and practical workshops. It all adds up to be the student tech event of the year” 

It is a huge opportunity for UCD to showcase their expansive ability in the field of computing and tech. It also opens up a fantastic window for professionals and tech companies to create links with UCD students and the college itself. Netsoc are pulling out all the stops for SISTEM, promising us it will be their “biggest event in the last 10 years”.

The event will take place in the O’Brien Centre on UCD campus on the 29th February. Tickets are at the student friendly rate of 10 euro, which includes a breakfast and lunch. With all proceeds from SISTEM going to ‘Jigsaw’, this year’s chosen charity for the conference.

Tickets went on sale Friday the 7th of February and are continuing to sell at a fast pace, with an expected sell out attendance of 200 people. SISTEM 2020 is an absolutely unmissable event for those who are interested in big tech and the computing industry.
