=== Schedule has been released ===

The list of talks with their abstracts has been on the website for quite
some time, but now we actually have put together a schedule based on
those talks.

Please see
for the schedule.

As you can see, the day is fully packed with talks about Osmocom
cellular infrastructure projects. We had to cut some talk slots short
(30min instead of 45min), but I'm confident that it is good to cover a
wider range of topics, while at the same time avoiding fragmenting the
audience with multiple tracks.

=== Travel Grants ===

We are happy to announce that we have received donations to permit for
providing travel grants!

This means that any attendee who is otherwise not able to cover their
travel to OsmoCon 2017 (e.g. because their interest in Osmocom is not
related to their work, or because their employer doesn't pay the travel
expenses) can now apply for such a travel grant.

For more details see
and/or constact osmocon2017 at sysmocom.de.

=== Social Event ===

Tech Talks are nice and fine, but what many people enjoy even more at
conferences is the informal networking combined with good food. For
this, we have the social event at night, which is open to all attendees.
