###Stage Manager + Timing
Hi, We will need - at least for Saturday - a stage manager. Someone who welcomes the speaker at the stage and - more importantly - keeps the time! I have some experiences with self-organized conferences like ours - and with an atmosphere like that the talks always explode! At the OPENiT Festival the last talks of the day were 2 hours behind schedule because the first speakers took to much time.
So we need two things
A stage manager
A breathier schedule - When we say to someone: “You have 10 minutes for your presentation” it should take 20 in our program! Or even 25. Let’s rather have a discussion after the talks then an unhappy audience and unhappy speakers.

If you are ok with it, I will change the timing a bit.
