This page lists the Labs that are being finalised for the programme. Shortly it will show the final list. Browse this to get a feel for what you can expect and get excited!
The Labs are 'mini-workshops', also hands-on and are part of the core programme. So you will be able to choose them at will during the conference. They will run in parallel to presentation tracks, for 1h30 each.
Soon this list will be redundant as you will be able to see a detailed schedule and asbtracts of the Labs on the main conference website.
This list is current as of July 22, 2008 14:00 SAST
