The moderators are very experienced in their topics and are volunteers out of our Docville community.  There will be different themed round table & panel discussions running at the same time and depending on the demand, we may even decide to run certain topics more than once. The above is only a preliminary program and will be adjusted to the best interest of all attendees for a maximum of exchange.  

The sessions will close with a general Q&A discussion finishing at 6 p.m and attendees will meet for networking drinks and the networking dinner therafter. For those staying overnight, we recommendto use this great opportunity to meet colleagues for breakfast to continue with conversations the next morning. DocVille members can help to facilitate any meetings with other attendees. Depending on the demand we might consider also to organise some matching meeting. The price for the full event including the sessions and the networking dinner is 199€ and does not include the overnight stay at the hotel.The number of registrants is limited and will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis!


The organizers reserve the right to make changes to the agenda, the sessions and moderators.
