CAPIGI wants to offer more than regular conferences. Interaction is an important principle for CAPIGI. In order to achieve this, not only the usual elements of conferences will be offered, such as plenary sessions, workshops, and keynote speakers, CAPIGI will especially focus on the use of interactional components:
Social lunches: will be offered in order to stimulate networking. Everyone is free to eat where and with whom they want. This will be made possible by a buffet and cocktail tables or tables and chairs without appointed places.
Exhibition: During all breaks the exhibition will be open for participants to have a chat with a variety of companies active in the sector. With different tools, services or products they will present their organisation and inform the participants.
Hackathon: Simultaneously to the CAPIGI conference a hackathon will be organised at the same venue. Talented teams will compete on a challenge to use the vast amount of (open) data including satellite data, soil data, crop data and other relevant registries to solve a real life problem.
This is a selection of the activities that will ensure that the principle of creating more interaction will withstand. CAPIGI will offer plenary sessions, but also the possibility to choose within different programme elements, such as different workshops that will take place at the same time.
