Welcome to the Ubucon NYC Conference Schedule Page

Date: Friday February 16, 2007

The Ubucon NYC (New York City) is an unconference, so most of the day's schedule will be decided on the day of the conference. For more details, also see the original announcement.

If you'd like to schedule a session, please list the topic under the proposed session topics heading, including your name and the size of the audience you're expecting/can accommodate. The schedule is currently broken into one hour increments, but if you'll need more or less time for your presentation please indicate that along with your entry in the session topics section.

We'll fully populate the schedule matrix following the opening remarks and may be able to add more rooms if necessary.
