The Third "Death Online Research Symposium"

The third "Death Online Research Symposium" took place in March 2017 in Aarhus, Denmark. 

I attended the two previous symposiums but unfortunately could'nt attend this one and therefore can't deliver a detailed summary of it as I did with the previous two (2014 Day 1, Day 2, 2015 Day 1, Day 2). 

I bring the programme here even though I wasn't there in person as one of the ways to see where Digital Death is heading is to look at who the speakers are and which subjects they present, research and are interested in.
