[Keynote] Digital shift, ecological abyss?
The virtual aspect of digital technology often hides its very real environmental impact. Computers and smartphones as well as servers and infrastructures for online activities, like streaming and storage, consume high amounts of energy and materials - not to mention the connected objects that will soon come and whose data volume may increase faster than the storage capacities of data centers. ..

[Debate] Greener digital tech: everyone agrees, but whose responsible?
Levers for action exist to make digital technologies less environmentally harmful. People are being asked to clean up their mailboxes, but what are the responsibilities of companies, for which digital has become for many a cornerstone of their strategy? And what role should public authorities play in accompanying these necessary changes?

[Keynote] From Moore's Law to the Carbon Law
In October 2018, the IPCC announced that humanity’s carbon budget is equivalent to only 12 years. After this period, on current emissions level, global warming will exceed 1.5C, the preferable threshold of the Paris Agreement. A quantum leap is nevertheless possible: halving emissions every decade until 2050, while increasing the size of carbon sinks. Calculated by some of the world’s top climate scientists, this trajectory is known as a Carbon Law, and inspired by Moore’s Law—a conjecture that propelled technological acceleration since the 1960s.

Energy, agriculture, industry, transportation, buildings: through sectoral examples from the forthcoming “The Frontiers of Impact Tech" report, Benjamin Tincq will present how the alliance of digital technologies, scientific progress and systems thinking can provide answers to the climate emergency.

[Workshop l FR] Can ecology and IT go hand in hand?
This workshop aims to return to the issues at the crossroads of informatics and ecology to understand that informatics is not only virtual. We will be able to understand its positive and negative impact in ecological terms, but above all, we will have the opportunity to put in place concrete actions to limit our negative impact.

[Debate] Disrupting the collapse: can digital technology accelerate the ecological transition?
Digital technologies are great tools to help reduce many environmental impacts. However, implementing them also requires anticipating and taking into account rebound effects, and also risks that we simply intensifying our use of them. How can digital technology meet the challenges of the ecological transition? Can technological progress really address the root causes of climate change?
