Offtopicarium is an event for people with ideas and passion: a mix of a workshop, loose conference, geek gathering. We are open to various fields - including scientists (esp. PhD students), young entrepreneurs, people involved in NGOs, startups etc. You can find more about our main idea here.
To get a feeling about how the event looks like, you can take a look at programs of previous editions (see menu on the left). If you don't want to miss the next editions, leave your e-mail here.
The 4th Offtopicarium will take place on 3-5th January 2014 (Friday evening - Sunday evening), in Słomczyn near Warsaw.
Moreover, on 1-4th January we are considering making a hackathon (it's a new experiment to Offtopicarium, and it's completely optional; and it can be about anything (not only software!)). If you like to participate, just check that on the registration form!
Registration via this form (deadline: 1st December 2013).
At Offtopicarium, every participant gives a talk (standard one: 20 min + 20 min for a discussion; but if you want something else, just ask). Choose topics that you really want to share with others - there are no restrictions on the topics, as long as they are interesting!
If there are more applications than spots available (~30), participants will be qualified based on: interesting talk topics, accomplishments, currently developed projects etc.
Fee for the accommodation + materials + t-shirt will be around 15EUR.
(Accommodation: there are beds, but you are need to bring a blanket or a sleeping bag. If you are short of it, just mail us and we will bring one for you.)
The 3rd Offtopicarium took place on 9-12th August 2013 (Friday evening - Monday evening), in Słomczyn near Warsaw.
