  4. Pets and their integration into Internet of Things
  5. The history of computation and science fiction
  6. Game Theory
  7. Quantum Computing
  8. Algae Dynamics
  9. 21st century procurement routes for the new “soft” and “wet’ technologies
  10. Unconventional Computing- like slime mould driven robotics
