Day-by-day program: a stub

I assume three rooms for parallel sessions (about 20 capacity) and one for plenary (about 60 capacity). We will plan conference sessions on days 1 and 2, and reserve day 3 for the unConference. Day 0 is getting people in town and settled, getting to know everyone and sharing the info and instructions on how to steward and share our meetup and the building in the context of Matera.

All sessions are held in the parallel rooms, except where otherwise indicated. There are 8 conference slots x 3 rooms running in parallel, hence we have room for 24 sessions. At the time of writing we have 18 in the program. There is plenty of room to expand.

In a different scenario, we might consider only 2 parallel tracks. In that case we would need to eat into the unConference. @Natalia_Skoczylas, @RitaO, which rooms can we actually use?

Please community curators (@Matthias, @Nadia, Ben) note that you are supposed to structure the opening and closing panels, involving your counterparts outside the community.

I am checking it tomorrow with Rossella, will ask at the same time if she wants to hold a session as well. Tonight hoping to meet the local activists and get the slowly on board :wink:

Ok not possible today, I have to do it on 8th, they’re just overloaded with work.

It looks good to me

Thanks @Alberto for getting started with this… I’m no expert on conferences, so this doesn’t seem too crowded a schedule to me - 10 to 19:00 at night.

I don’t know about others… I’d love it if @Bembo_Davies, @hexayurt gave their free spirited opinions.

Note that some sessions take more than a 1 hour slot, so we’re now probably at top capacity. I’m also expecting others to be merged with one another, as per such remarks.


… should start pretty soon. I guess @Natalia_Skoczylas and I can take it. I have classified the 19 sessions proposed so far like this:

Lauren for keynote speaker

@Lauren, I have tentatively assigned to you the keynote on day 2, Saturday morning. I thought it made sense to highlight your great work with Case Study Adventures and share it with the community. Specifically, it would be nice to present some sort of “big picture” as it emerges from your long list of stewardship projects.

Reminder: I am tinkering with the program, standing in for Ben who informed us he would not be able to follow suit. If anyone has other ideas, I am listening.
