Combining two worlds – our program for LCIC 2024

Instead of simply making existing program elements available for virtual conference participants, we have created a program with combined but also dedicated elements for our physical and virtual participants, to ensure a highly interactive and unique conference experience for both!

While our program starts in the European morning for physical conference participants, our virtual program will take place mostly in the European afternoon, thereby allowing participants from all over the world to join us, as outlined below in our draft program. Program elements highlighted as “hybrid” such as our sessions, our keynote and our panels will be available for everyone, while workshops and barcamps will only be available for either physical or virtual conference participants.

The keynote, panels and all sessions are live streamed and thus also available for virtual participants! Workshops are only available for physical participants whereas barcamps are available for either physical or virtual participants. All sessions, panels and the keynote will be recorded and are accessible for conference participants shortly after the end of the recording of each session and will remain accessible after the conference for conference participants. Workshops & Barcamps will not be recorded!

We will build this part of the program “on the fly” during LCIC 2024.

You can propose a topic for a group discussion at the start of the conference. We will then let conference participants vote on the proposals and the ones with the most votes get a discussion slot assigned 🙂

No abstract required, just a convincing quick pitch 🙂
