Organizers opened the call for papers and workshops. They are planning to put together 9 workshops. As expected, these will be shaped as 3 hours hands on courses. Be advised that the chance to actively participate at FOSS4G-CEE 2013 will expire on the 15th of April. All proposals received after, might not be considered.

The early bird registration opened yesterday. With respect to a fair-play attitude organizers will not charge for the ticket you now reserve until the 21st of April, when the full schedule will be announced. It’s always nice to know what you are paying for. Thus, they fully rely on your responsible attitude to reserve your ticket only when you are confident that your presence at the conference is a certainty. They want to give a real chance to everyone to participate, so they have decided that within the early bird registration, students’ entry will be free of charge. The early bird registration closes on the 16th of May.
