We plan to run 2-3 parallel seminar tracks for most of the program. At least one track will be in English.

This time, we are planning to focus on workshops with capped amount of participants.
Since the detailed preparation of the program very much depends on the number of judges/presenters, if you are likely to arrive, please apply ASAP – don`t wait for the application deadline. We also don’t have unlimited number of rooms.


There will be no seminars on Friday. We plan to spend the afternoon/evening with social activities. Various group entertainment proposals will be posted in special thread.
Some suggestions: BBQ party, beachvolleyball, swimming, hike, sauna, minigolf, Magic tournament, beer and chat,….


On Saturday there will be mandatory seminars, starting from 9.00am. After Meet&Greet we are planning to run about 3-4 workshops in 2-3 trays, following by a late lunch (around 1pm) After lunch and siesta there will be 1-2 big sesssions. This will last until around 16.30-17.00.
