There are many cafes, bars and restaurants near by where you can stop off for some refreshment.

Because we received an overwhelming amount of interesting abstracts, it was decided to organize three parallel sessions every morning and afternoon (instead of two). We do understand the inconvenience of this construction (e.g. having to miss a large number of presentations) and therefore we ask all participants to make their papers available through process.arts. We plan to film all the presentations and make them equally available here.
We have accepted thirty-six papers for presentation, which come from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds (PhD-students, lecturers, professors as well as practitioners). Presenters have twenty minutes to present their paper (chairs will be instructed to firmly keep people to time to avoid delays) and a beemer is available on the sites as well as technical support.
We do ask delegates to be present for the entire duration of the conference (nobody likes to speak for an empty room; this is a matter of personal and professional courtesy).
This is an interactive platform where abstracts, papers, presentations and video recording can be shared will everybody. You are also welcome to create an account and post interesting material, comments, etc. If not mentioned differently, all content is copyrighted.
In order to put all the papers on the website, we ask the presenters to send in their papers no later than the 1st of November 2013.
