Info for Speakers

Preliminary info:

  • Please decide on a language for your talk (English or German).
  • Is your talk going to have an interactive component or be a workshop where users can work along?
  • Talks should be no longer than 20 min + 10 min for additional material/questions in the event we have fewer than 5 talks.
  • Assume users have basic knowledge of SCM. What makes YOUR SCM interesting/different/better/worse/more desirable?


  • Approx 28 audience members in attendance.
  • Advertisments should have gone up earlier
  • Book a larger room
  • Email addresses of speakers should have been collected on sign-up
  • More coordination needed among distributed scm presenters to avoid redundancy in presented material and improve audience's ability to compare and contrast the systems
  • Overall, the event ran quite smoothly and it appeared everyone was pleased
  • Are there any plans for publishing the slides? (Yes, see top)

"I enjoyed it. I didn't notice anything that went bad or wrong.

If you have similar events / talks / presentations in the future, I would like to hear of them; and if I feel competent in the subject, I would offer talks like this one."
