In addition to the official Conference we will, in good tradition, host the so-called Community Meetings on Tuesday 16/Oct/2012, i.e. one day before the official Conference. While they are not per se private, they are – in comparison to the rest of the Conference – mainly targeted towards existing project members, and take place in form of meetings and workshops rather than lectures.
Currently planned are meetings for the following groups:
- Board of Directors
- Advisory Board
- Membership Committee
- Engineering Steering Committee
- regional groups, like the German, French, Italian or Brazilian community
- design and user experience
- QA and localization
- system administrator and infrastructure
If you are part of any of those groups, committees or bodies, we strongly recommend planning your trip so you can attend on Tuesday 16/Oct/2012 already. The Community Meetings serve the purpose to meet your fellow colleagues and friends, discuss the successes of the last twelve months, and plan the achievements of the next year.
Attending the community meetings is only possible for registered attendees to the conference, who can identify themselves with an official document.
