Important Notes

  • Open Agile Event is not displayed in the schedule above. Each day in between 10:00-13:00, Open Agile Event will run workshops in AN032 Amphitheater. After the lunch break, starting with 14:00 and finishing with 17:00, Open Agile Event will run in the 3rd track, in parallel with eLiberatica tracks. For more information and detailed event schedule, please check Open Agile website.

  • All breaks will be synchronized in between tracks, so the attendees will have the chance to change rooms.
  • IMPORTANT! In between breaks, when the presentations are running, the Amphitheater's door will be closed to avoid disturbing the speeches. The conference organizers are kindly asking all participants to follow this simple rule and do not change rooms in between breaks.
    Please make your mind before and chose carefully the speech you wish to attend.
