...3 days left

Only three more days to go and the event, which everybody at CEE is working towards to, is finally going to start. The whole campus seems to buzz of activity; every day new people from all over the world arrive.
On the lawns, huge tents for the plenaries and also for the food court are being put up and every person passing you seems to be incredibly busy.
That is the situation right now; I guess that the excitement all around us will rise from day to day.
First pre-meetings already started today which made us kind of realize, that the conference really is as close as our countdown tells us. 
For all the people coming next week - and of course for everybody else interested also - we upload the current Programme Outline:
