Disruptive Technology

This year’s theme was Disruptive Technology. Disruptive Technology is technology that displaces an established technology. This will shake up the current industry or is so groundbreaking that it creates its own industry. This topic is focussing on current and future technologies that will change the work field of current students. It is hard for students to predict the future of a rapidly changing market. We want to give the students a mind-changing insight into the future.

“If I asked people what they had wanted they would have said faster horses.”
Henry Ford


DisruptIT tried to change the minds of the students attending the conference. We wanted to inform the attendees about how the IT industry might change in the coming years. This was done with interesting talks by scientists, entrepreneurs and experts from the business sector. We have two keynotes speakers and two parallel tracks of three sessions to fit everybody's personal needs. You will be able to choose whichever talk you find most appealing.


The conference was held in theater "De Spiegel" in Zwolle. The building not only looks incredible from the outside, with its iconic cupola, and definitely inspires participants with its modern inside. The conference took place on November 15th 2017. The conference took place during the full day, including drinks at the end of the conference. Don't worry, we checked that none of you missed any exams.

Every year, a conference with an IT related subject is organised. For each conference one study association is chosen to take care of the organsisation.
