Digital Transformation of Collaboration

COINs Conference 2019 | Warsaw, Poland | Oct 08 - Oct 09, 2019

About COINs Conference

Collaborative innovation networks, or COINs, are cyberteams of self-motivated people with a collective vision, to innovatively collaborate by sharing ideas, information, and work enabled by technology. COINs are powered by swarm creativity, wherein people work together in a structure that enables a fluid creation and exchange of ideas. Patterns of collaborative innovation frequently follow an identical path, from creator to COIN to collaborative learning network (CLN) to collaborative interest network (CIN).

The 9th edition of the Collaborative Innovation Networks (COINs) conference will be held at Warsaw, Poland. COINs will bring together researchers and practitioners from across the world to share the results of their work. This year we collaborate with the annual Masters and Robots meetup, one of Poland's biggest events about innovation, start-ups, future technologies and more. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to meet and share cutting-edge advancements in the field of Social Network Analysis, Online Social Networks, Data Mining, AI & Deep Learning and the impact of those technologies on society and culture.

    Venue & Travel

    City: Warsaw

    Warsaw (Polish: Warszawa) is the capital of Poland and with 1.7 million inhabitants its largest city. It is located on the Vistula River (Wisła), roughly equidistant (350 km, 217 mi) from both the Baltic Sea (Bałtyk) in the north and the Carpathian Mountains (Karpaty) in the south. Most of the major sightseeing attractions are located in Centrum area, which encompasses seven districts, however, the most important district for sight seeing is likely to be considered Śródmieście. The other districts all have something else to offer too, but the further from Centrum you journey, the less likely you're to find much of anything that is of any major interest, although Wilanów's palace and Kabaty forest are interesting enough.
