In 2020, St. Petersburg will, for the first time, host the SCIENCE FEST organized by the Roscongress Foundation.
The event will take place at three venues: Planetarium 1, the largest one in the world; open technology lab at the planetarium; and Lumiere Hall exhibition space. The main themes of the Festival will be artificial intelligence, green economy, futurism, industry 4.0, scientific-technical creativity of youth, selection and financing of tech projects.
Over 15,000 people are expected to attend the event, among them SPIEF participants, residents and guests of St. Petersburg, including senior university students, young scientists and developers from various Russian regions.
The SCIENCE FEST programme will feature a cyborg conference, passenger drone test drives, robot battles, driverless car races, installations and many more. Around 50 speakers from 20 countries will take part in lectures, workshops and roundtables.
Guests will also enjoy a vast musical programme: five hours of non-stop music that is played by residents of the Burning Man festival and a headliners performance whose name is kept secret for now.
