Mobile Conference Webapp

It is probably your first time to Osnabrück and before you get lost we want to give you a little guide with our conference webapp for your smartphone:

You will find some basic information about the conference and the program there. But one of the main features is a pub finder. So if you don’t know what to do in the evenings in Osnabrück you can use the pub finder (“around me” menu item) and check in to a pub with your DIVERSE profile. Other will notice where you have checked in.

Unfortunately there is no real free Wifi in germany in pubs, but you can ask the waiters in several pubs for the SSID and the password.

Only a few days left!

In less than a week one week the Opencast/Diverse conference will start!
We are really looking forward to welcome you in Osnabrück!
As these are 2 conferences in 1 we still have 2 websites, we did not manage to get all these features in one website in the short time. But you only need to pay once, even if you register on both websites. Sorry for this.

The Conference is Approaching

Finally, a long and hard winter comes to an end and we can look forward to more sunny days – with the 2013 DIVERSE conference in Osnabruck, Germany as a highlight! We are happy to invite you to join us for this year’s conference from June 24-26. Please note that we shifted the event from June 26-28 (as announced in the CfP).
