Unofficial calendar[edit]

There will be at least one small room or presentation area available in the conference center, throughout the conference, for holding unofficial presentations, and workshops. There will also be sections of the Terrassensaal (the community room) set up for jam sessions and gatherings.

If you are planning to attend the conference, and want to schedule your own meeting with others there, demonstrate your latest project, or hold a discussion group (about chapters, projects, wiki standards, interaction with outside agencies, &c), feel free to use this space to coordinate and reserve time slots.

The speakers room will not be available for use during most of the conference, save to speakers and presenters. The small room and the speakers room may not be open after 6pm or before 9am. If you need one of these rooms for something in particular, leave a note here.

Calendar[edit]

Things to keep that in mind when scheduling things: Thursday, the conference has not yet fully begun; other groups may be using these rooms. Monday, we only have the rooms until noon; after that the hostel staff will need to clean up. Similarly, most people will need to be checked out by Monday noon (unless you have made arrangements with the hostel to stay longer).
