What a great program is in store of 3 days of FREE information sharing at the 5th SLanguages Annual Symposium in Second Life, #slang11.

It starts Friday, 16 September, 8am SL | 3pm GMT and runs until Sunday 18 September, 8am SL | 3pm GMT  with American/ European and Asian timezones in mind and with sleeping breaks too! 

Individual event schedules (work in progress) are listed under the SLanguages SCHEDULES tab and a draft programme is under the the SLanguages PROGRAMME tab.

We are looking forward to some 45h of program in nearly 40 session with a good 60+ presenters, guest speakers, workshop conductors, tour guides, actors and actresses, artists and, and, and.

Some of the highlights are the Jane Eyre theatre play, Hayo Reinders keynotes, Lyr Lobo's sessions touring World of Warcraft and conducting an interactive workshop on artificial intelligence language bots, the panel discussion by the University of Berlin on the topic Virtual Culture, a Universities panel discussion, several language demo lessons and of course fun, dance performances, art galleries and lots of enjoyable social time.

All YOU need to bring is TIME!

Time to meet and to make friends and time to share. Well, actually not all, we are also hoping that you share some freebies or goodies and drop a box or two at our resource center on EduNation III and set the properties to full perm, so that we all can take a copy. Teaching tools, games but also building stuff and whatever is full perm. Also our artists and performers are appreciative of tips, if you can spare some Lindens.

A last bit of information from the organisers: the temporary conference island is soon to appear next to EduNation III and thanks to our conference sponsor languagelab, we are able to pay for this. The reason for doing so is, that we found out, that the majestic cross platform sky conference venue which Randall built with a seating capacity of about 150 avatars does not allow sound to travel across from one sim to the other, because of our different ownerships. Hence this temporary solution - which we hope will work. We hope and pray of course, hehe.

Due to this situation however, we are not able to hand out SLURLs or landmarks because they are temporary as for now. We can however ensure you, that because of Randall's relentless work and his 33 (!) versions of an AWESOME SLanguages Conference TP HUD, you will not get lost. We hope and pray of course, hehe.
