At the SUMMIT Conference, one of our primary goals is to inculcate interdisciplinary collaboration, with attendees from various disciplines engaging with new concepts and ideas. To achieve this, we have created eight umbrella themes - each open for interpretation - that guide presentations throughout the event. The themes range from sustainability, technology, and Artificial Intelligence to culture, health, and social justice, aiming to reflect diverse subject areas and research interests. These themes are further elaborated upon below, and every participant can dabble in different fields, utilizing their critical and creative thinking skills to engage with real-world challenges and dialogues.
