BUSTECH 2024 - The Fourteenth International Conference on Business Intelligence and Technology

April 14, 2024 - April 18, 2024

BUSTECH 2024: Program
Onsite and Online Options: In order to accommodate a large number of situations, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation (pdf slides or pre-recorded videos).

For 2024, all events will be held in a hybrid mode with five options: on site or virtual choices (live, prerecorded videos, voiced presentation slides, and .pdf slides).

We hope for better times allowing us to return to the traditional on site scientific events. However, we are ready to adapt any which way the conditions dictate.

 

ComputationWorld 2024 Congress

Conference will be mixed online and on location at
