  • new agenda is available HERE
  • we have rescheduled all confirmed meetings from March 13 to April 7. Please check your account for new schedule

  • all participants with „canceled” and „rejected” status have been revoked to „accepted” but they still need to enter their profiles and choose matchmaking session to be able to book meetings. Should you not be able to participate on April 7, please cancel your presence in the system.
  • matchmaking system has been restored, you can once again send out new meeting invitations. This will be possible until April 5 23:55 CET
