CalConnect XLIII is the first preview of our new conference format. CalConnect XLIII will be four days (Monday through Thursday), and brings together, as a single event and with a single fee, our traditional conference (Conference Track), with elements of the former developers' forum (Technical Track). The two tracks are simply a handy guide to the session content, and all attendees are encouraged to attend sessions in both tracks. We will use your feedback and experience at Karlsruhe to help us fine-tune our new conference for events in 2019 and beyond.
CalConnect XLIII is open to members, and to non-members as observers.
Overalll Format: Monday morning will be the opening of the Technical Track and an introduction for first-time attendees and observers. Monday afternoon will be the opening of the Conference Track, including status of CalConnect activities, and other CalConnect business, and an Public Workshop to introduce Calendaring & Scheduling to developers, which will be advertised in the Karlsruhe IT community. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings will be Conference Track, afternoons will be Technical Track. The model for the content of the tracks is below; the Schedule section will include sessions for both the general and technical tracks.
