Speaker Information

Hello and welcome to the speaker list of the Neos Conference! We are happy to have you with us and can hardly wait to see you on stage. This guide is intended to provide you with all the necessary or useful information to help you achieve an awesome performance. 

If you need any additional help or guidance, please write an e-mail under conference (at) neos.io.

Hotel:

We have a reservation on your name for a single room from 09.05. – 11.05.2019 (for some speakers individual dates apply) at Motel One Dresden Palaisplatz - if you did not tell us otherwise. Not sure if you have a reservation? Please contact Lisa through Slack or conference (at) neos.io. Please be aware that breakfast is not included – we’ll have breakfast snacks at the location :)

Ticket:

You are listed as a speaker. So you don’t need a ticket. Just say your name at the registration. If you already ordered a ticket, it has either been refunded or changed to another person.

Talk:

Check out the schedule to see what day/time your talk is going to be. Please check in at the streaming/audio/video desk at the back of your room in the morning, when you arrived at the venue. Then, we'll assign you a time to set up the equipment.

Sessions are scheduled with a short 5 minute break to enable all attendees to switch rooms without disturbing currently running talks.
