At last, it's here!

Check out the details of the OKFestival programme - including session
descriptions, times and facilitator bios here

We’re using a tool called Sched to display the programme this year and it
has several great features. Firstly, it gives individual session organisers
the ability to update the details on the session they’re organising; this
includes the option to *add slides or other useful material*. If you’re one
of the facilitators we’ll be emailing you to give you access this week.

Sched also enables every user to create their own personalised programme to
include the sessions they’re planning to attend. We’ve also *colour-coded
the programme* to help you when choosing which conversations you want to
follow: the *Knowledge stream is blue*, the*Tools stream is red* and
the *Society
stream is green*. You’ll also notice that there are a bunch of sessions in
purple which correspond to the opening evening of the festival when we’re
hosting an *Open Knowledge Fair*. We’ll be providing more details on what
to expect from that shortly!

Another way to *search the programme* is *by the subject of the session* –
find these listed on the right hand side of the main schedule – just click
on any of them to see a list of sessions relevant to that subject.

As you check out the individual session pages, you’ll see that we’ve created
* etherpads* for each session where notes can be taken and shared, so don’t
forget to keep an eye on those too. And finally; to make the conversations
even easier to follow from afar using social media, we’re encouraging
session organisers to create *individual hashtags for their sessions*.
You’ll find these listed on each session page.

We received over 300 session suggestions this year – the most yet for any
event we’ve organised – and we’ve done our best to fit in as many as we
can. There are 66 sessions packed into 2.5 days, plus 4 keynotes and 2
fireside chats. We’ve also made space for an unconference over the 2 core
days of the festival, so if you missed out on submitting a proposal,
there’s still a chance to present your ideas at the event: come ready to
pitch! Finally, the Open Knowledge Fair has added a further 20 demos – and
counting – to the lineup and is a great opportunity to hear about more
projects. The Programme is full to bursting, and while some time slots may
still change a little, we hope you’ll dive right in and start getting
excited about July!

We think you’ll agree that *Open Knowledge Festival 2014 is shaping up to
be an action-packed few days* – so if you’ve not bought your ticket yet, do
so now
Come join us for what will be a memorable 2014 Festival!

See you in Berlin!
