CEBIT has enlisted the support of students from the Hannover Universi-ty of Applied Sciences and Arts (HsH) in designing the d!talk areas. Stu-dents majoring in Integrated Media & Communication will be creating the visual setting for the CEBIT areas under the motto of "Technology and the City". The d!talk scenario comprises the speakers’ stages, the auditorium and workshop rooms.
