  Travel information

Schedule Planner

The EC-TEL09 Schedule Planner (link) will help you explore the program and plan your participation in the conference.

With planner you can explore talks, posters, demos, workshops to be presented at EC-TEL09, find the papers that are most interesting for you, add them to your schedule (the system maintains a personal schedule for each registered user), and export the schedule into your organizer.

While scheduling a paper you can also tag it and add it to your most relevant communities of interest. All of your work will become a part of the community wisdom, which will help other users of the system find most interesting talks. You can also explore which papers were added to your favorite communities by other attendees.

Thanks are due to the PAWS Lab of the University of Pittsburgh for creating the Schedule Planner.
