How can I submit a session?

To submit a session, you have to purchase your ticket first. Afterwards you can login to the site and propose your session. Topics can be everything that's relevant for the attendees: The hot new stuff, basics, specialities - whatever you think will be interesting for the community. We're also open to non-Drupal-related topics, that have a relevance for the audience.

 

Why should advanced sessions be submitted in English?

We think that Frankfurt has the best preconditions for an international camp, as its situated in the center of Europe and its big airport can be reached from nearly everywhere. Therefore we hope to attract people from all over the world - and we want all of them to gain the most of the sessions. Beginner sessions can be held in German as well.

 

How long should a session be?

Sessions should take around 40 minutes and 10 minutes for questions. If you have a topic that needs slots, please tell us in your session proposal that you need two time slots. We will then consider it in our session planning.

 

How are sessions selected?

If we have more session proposals as we have timeslots, we'll chose which sessions we want to have 1-2 weeks before the camp starts. So it's important that you add a good description to your proposal. We'll try to chose the sessions in a way that all relevant topics are covered and that sessions are of good quality.

 

Will there be sprints?

Yes, there will be sprints! On Saturday and Sunday we reserved one room, just for sprints. There will be no sessions in this room. So feel free to use this and talk to others about you problemns and solutions and find out how you can help to make Drupal better. There is even a extended Sprint on Friday and Monday at Cocomore AG (Gutleutstr. 30, 60329 Frankfurt). You don't need to signup for this, but would be very helpful for us, if you could enter your name in the GoogleDocs list, so we can better plan.

 

How do I get around in Frankfurt?

The public transportation system in Frankfurt is really good. From the big stations like the central station or the Hauptwache, S-bahn and underground trains are leaving every few minutes in every direction. Just remember, if you want to go by train, S-Bahn or underground, you need to buy your ticket at the station. There are ticket machines at each station. If you go by bus or tram, the tickets can also be bought in the car. All tickets are stamped immediately, so you can’t buy your tickets for the weekend all at once.
If you want to go around throughout the day or make some breaks during your trip, you can buy an all-day-ticket for 6,60EUR. If you are in a group of 2 to 5 people buy a group day ticket for 9,50EUR. You have to choose the option “Tageskarte Frankfurt” or “Gruppentageskarte Frankfurt” at the ticket box.
A single ticket can be bought for 2,60EUR. You can use it for one way travels within Frankfurt.

In case that you’re coming from abroad and you arrive by plane, the S-Bahn (underground) lines S8 and S9 will take you directly to the central station within 15 minutes. They leave at the airport every 15 minutes and the ticket costs 5,20EUR. 
When you arrive at the central station you have to go downstairs to find the S-Bahn or the underground trains that will take you into the city center. The trams are situated outside, directly in front of the main entrance of the station.
