We are delighted to announce the 7th edition of Offtopicarium!

Offtopicarium is an event for people with ideas and passion: a mix of a workshop, loose conference, and 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.


The 7th edition of Offtopicarium took place in Słomczyn near Warsaw, 15-17th April 2016.

**Please feel free to share your thoughts and feelings about 7th edition[ ] **

At Offtopicarium, every participant gives a talk (standard one: 15 min + 15 min for a discussion; but if you want something else, just ask) or prepares some interesting activity for all participants (e.g. tutorials or workshops). 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 (~35), participants will be qualified based on interesting proposed topics (practical activities will be even more welcome).

Important information:

• The deadline for application is 25.03.2016. After that date the applications will not be taken into consideration. We will inform you whether your application will have been accepted by 1.04.2016.
• The cost of the event is 45 zł (it covers accommodation and refreshments. Participants are to pay an advance (25 zł + optionally T-shirt price) by 08.04.2016.
• If you like to get a T-shirt, please indicate so in the form, along with size. We polite ask you to pay for it together with the advance. We will announce exact price later, but we expect it to be around 25 zł.

Additional information:

• We do not provide any food. There is a kitchen available on site. However, if you are interested in preparation of share food we strongly encourage you to indicate this in the registration form.
• Since the guesthouse does not provide any bed linen you should bring with you a sleeping bag.
