Our Talks

  • Calling for papers has started
  • Our talks are submitted, but awaiting more
  • We have approx usually cca 20-25 minutes slots, so choose wisely the theme - time runs out quickly.
  • English is not a blocker, but hungarian is the preferred. But if you plan to make an talk else as Hungarian, do it in English. Most of the audience is talks english, as this University is an Open Source software development lab. So don't be affraid.
