OsmoCon 2017 updates¶
There are some updates related to OsmoCon2017, the first Osmocom Conference, held on April 21st, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
Summary¶Summary (for those too busy to read the full post):
- Schedule of talks has been released
- Travel Grants available for participants who are otherwise unable to travel to Berlin
- Social Event details available, including menu
- April 21st is approaching fast, make sure you get your Ticket in time. Limited number of seats available.
Schedule has been release¶
The list of talks with their abstracts has been on the website for quite some time, but now we actually have put together a schedule based on those talks.
Please see OsmoCon2017 for the schedule.
As you can see, the day is fully packed with talks about Osmocom cellular infrastructure projects. We had to cut some talk slots short (30min instead of 45min), but I'm confident that it is good to cover a wider range of topics, while at the same time avoiding fragmenting the audience with multiple tracks.
We are happy to announce that we have received donations to permit for providing travel grants!
This means that any attendee who is otherwise not able to cover their travel to OsmoCon 2017 (e.g. because their interest in Osmocom is not related to their work, or because their employer doesn't pay the travel expenses) can now apply for such a travel grant.
Tech Talks are nice and fine, but what many people enjoy even more at conferences is the informal networking combined with good food. For this, we have the social event at night, which is open to all attendees.
