You can find DebConf18's official schedule Here.

Over the years, ad-hoc sessions have become an important part of DebConf. Even though we put our best effort into curating and scheduling what we hope to be a great set of talks, the pace of interactions is too high; ideas get bounced around, and new discussions pop up during conversations. Ideas that you will want to share or discuss more widely, in BoF sessions!

Rules for scheduling

So, for that to happen, we rely on the ad-hoc (also known as self-scheduled) sessions. The process for scheduling ad-hoc talks is as follows:

  1. Register your session in Wafer; please mark it as belonging to the ad-hoc track. Only sessions registered in Wafer will be scheduled.
    1. Do note that you can schedule sessions you had submitted for DebConf but were not accepted for the main program.
  2. You can register your talk using this page, using any unassigned spaces that appear empty in the official schedule. Do note your talk ID, title, duration (20/45/120 min) and the author's name when doing so, so we are sure we are scheduling the right session.
    1. By the request of our tireless Video Team, talks can be scheduled for any available schedule slot in the week with 48 hours notice. Talks requested for the next day will have to be ignored ☹
    2. Over the day, we will work on a best-effort basis to update the schedule online. We can only commit to update it at the end of the day every day. We will note requests that have been scheduled.
  3. No video coverage will be provided for self-scheduled sessions.
    1. Note that if recording the video and making it available is important to you, it can usually be done with decent results using personal cameras. If you do it and the resulting quality is satisfying, it can be accepted in the meetings-archive, under a contrib/ directory.

Schedule oddities you need to know

There are some details you should be aware regarding the logic behind our schedule:

Plenary talks
We judged some talks to be of high enough quality and interest for the project that we made them into plenaries. If you see a single talk scheduled just after lunch (or the opening session, or the closing session), don't ask for a concurrent room — we will not schedule it.
Daytrip
On Wednesday we are going on a daytrip. If you decide not to come, you are free to stay at NCTU — But no activity will be scheduled on that day!
Conference dinner
On Thursday, we are leaving by bus for the conference dinner. The last talk slot (17:00-) is not available.
Typhoon buffer day
We are in Taiwan during the high season for typhoons. We were suggested to heave a 24hr "hole" in the schedule to allow for some movement if needed (as MIRC will probably not open if there is a typhoon). The hole is between Saturday Aug 4 and Sunday Aug 5 14:00. You can request for scheduling within this time, but if we have to use this buffer, anything scheduled in this hole will be removed.
