my apologies for being slightly off topic, but I guess this might be 
interesting to see some of you / related to some topics discussed on 
this list.

Please feel also free to forward this to anybody you might have in mind, 
who is dealing with novel calendaring solutions and ideas and might be 
interested in community discussion.

Thanks and best,


CalendarFest is a novel (virtual) event, which wants to let users and 
developers of (electronic) calendar applications, servers, and related 
groupware systems, share experiences and discuss novel ideas.

CalendarFest will take place *18th of October*, 02:30h PM UTC virtually 
via Zoom, and is held in conjunction with the CalConnect virtual 

        Lightning talks

People who wish to discuss or present certain topics are invited to 
submit a *proposal for lightning talks*.

Lightning Talk presentations will be a maximum of 15-20 minutes each. 
Presenters may use slides, but these must be submitted to the Lightning 
Talks chair a few days before the presentation.


Lightning Talk proposals must be submitted in PDF format. The proposal 
is limited to 1 page, 500 words max. The full proposal contains a title, 
an abstract (maximum 250 words) and a description where you should 
explain your talk in more detail. It will be helpful for reviewers to 
know why you are excited about the topic, and why you think others will 
be interested too. Outline how you plan to present your topic. The 
proposal also may contain a link to a website with more information.

non-profit partnership between vendors and users of collaboration 
systems and tools, in particular calendaring and scheduling. CalConnect 
members convene regularly to discuss and develop standards for 
electronic calendaring and related topics.

CalConnect Virtual Conference, is to provide an interdisciplinary 
discussion space for current topics in electronic calendaring from 
different perspectives.
