Following the huge success of its second edition in 2014, which registered the participation of more than 200 delegates from 40 different countries worldwide, SUM 2016 - 3rd Symposium on Urban Mining will be held in the suggestive former Monastery of Saint Augustine in Bergamo's upper city, from 23rd to 25th of May 2016.
