SoCraTes Days Linz 2018 is a two-day conference. On both days we will have an open space conference about software crafting and testing. On Friday, our first day, we will start in the early afternoon and continue late into the night. On saturday, we will start in the morning and end the open space at 5 p.m. Afterwards, we will have dinner and evening sessions.
We will also prepare rooms where you can host two-hour or four-hour workshops. We will decide on the workshops just as we decide on the sessions: During the “market place”, when we begin the day.
The open space conference is entirely created by the participants with a facilitator who will guide through both days.
The main language of the event (facilitation, group activities) will be English. Sessions can be in German if everybody in the audience of the session understands German or if you announce the session as “German session”.
SoCraTes Days Linz 2018 will be at the Wissensturm Linz. It is right across the street from Linz main railway station (“Linz Hauptbahnhof”) and can be easily reached by bus, tram and train.
We will have the whole 15th and 10th floor of the building for the conference. You can find more information and a floor plan here: Seminarräume im Wissensturm (German homepage).
The restaurant niu is at the ground floor of the Wissensturm. They will provide the lunch-time catering and we will have the evening sessions at the restaurant.
