SambaXP is the yearly Samba team meeting and it's ecosystem of developers, users and vendors all around the globe since 2002. This year the event is not possible to be held in the usual Goettingen venue due to travel restrictions for many people caused by COVID-19.
Therefore, the organizing committee decided to organize a virtual event. The complete agenda will take place in online rooms that can be visited from any place in the world with internet connection and the speakers will give their presentations from their home or work place. Participants can switch between tracks more easy than in real life or even try to follow two talks at the same time! The event will be recorded if the speakers agree. The planned IO-Lab cannot take place for obvious reasons, we are sorry.
More information will be published during April and May at sambaXP.org. For now, we only answer the most immediate questions and ask you to contact our team in case of other demands.
Q: I ordered and paid a ticket already. Can I ask for a refund?
A: Yes, of course. We will contact you during April. You may decide to ask for a refund OR you consider to visit the conference in person next year? Then you are already done with registration and payment for sambaXP 2021!
Q: I am a speaker or member of Samba team with a free ticket. Do I need to register again
A: No, please not. Your registration is in our records and we keep it active
Q: I booked a hotel room. How does that work?
A: If you made the reservation on your own, please cancel right now. If SerNet took care of your speaker or team reservation, we will take care and cancel your hotel reservation.
Q: What about the tutorial on Tuesday?
A: The tutorial will be a webinar. Already registered participants can ask for refund. OR they stay registered for this year and free of charge at sambaXP 2021, too.
