Nethui isn’t like a conference – it’s not a barcamp and we don’t just sit and listen to speakers and experts– it’s a collaborative coming together of anyone and everyone interested in the Internet– how it works, how it could work, and what you can do because it works.

NetHui involves a range of different formats. There are keynotes and plenary panels, and at the heart of NetHui are one hour long discussion sessions which come from the NetHui community on all kinds of topics and issues.

Session details are added below as they are confirmed. There will be limited space for ‘Late Breaking Sessions’, if there is a topic you’d like to run as a late breaking session, please email:
