Make your personal schedule
Did you notice the small stars in the schedule page, beside every talk?
If you're logged in and click on one, your presence at that presentation will be registered. This way, you can make your own personal schedule, handy to print and bring with you at the conference, to be sure you won't miss anything.
Also, you will help the organizers to spot space problems in advance.
The attendees' dinner will be on Thursday, October 22nd, 2009 at Ristorante Duomo), which is very near the Leaning Tower.
The price for the dinner is EUR 30; this includes: appetizers, two first courses, one second course with side, dessert, coffee and beverage (wine/mineral water/beer).
To everyone who has not yet confirmed their presence at the dinner, we kindly ask to do so via the website before Monday, October 19th, 2009.
To anyone who will join at the last minute (which is to say, during the registration on Thursday, October 22nd, 2009 between 9am and 10am), we'll try (but we don't guarantee) to ensure the same menu and price. In case we won't be able to, the restaurant should have enough space to allow everyone to join the dinner, even outside our agreements (in this case, by ordering 'à la carte').
Some things to note:
If you are a speaker, that is, you are going to give some (non-lightning) talks, you don't have to buy the dinner ticket: the organization is happy to offer it to you. The same applies to 'guest' speakers or a sponsors.
