A System-Administration Conference for Students, Professionals, and inquisitive minds.

About Tech Symposium

For over seven years, SWIFT has been running Tech Symposium, a conference dedicated to System Administration, Network Administration, and Security. Tech Symposium is a student-run event that allows students and professionals to collaborate through interactive and informative presentations and workshops. With the dynamic and ever-changing role of technology, providing informative and relevant information is crucial to adapt to a continuously changing environment.

Tech Symposium will always be free for students. Tech Symposium is closely integrated to universities and most importantly the students. There is always a forum for students and professionals to explore mutual interests and learn from one another, an aspect that sets Tech Symposium apart from other conferences.

As with previous years, we aim to offer various trainings, a varied line-up of talks, and many opportunities to connect.

Interested? Here's this year's Schedule

If you're curious, there's a lot of talks and workhops happening.
