> *Installfest*: The informal Installfest pre-dinner slot will give  
> delegates the opportunity to meet in a common area and install a  
> wide variety of FOSS software on their laptops, EEPC or any other  
> system they care to bring in. Community members will be on hand to  
> assist with any troubles and provide help and insight into the  
> software.
> *Workshops and Tutorials*: Workshops and Tutorials allow presenters  
> to lead attendees through applications, integration solutions, or  
> other topics in an interactive environment.
> *Presentations*: The meat of the conference is its presentations.  
> Drawing on a huge community of local, regional and international  
> experts we will discuss some of the most current and poignant topics  
> in the industry today. Expect to hear honest presentations  
> discussing weaknesses as well as strengths, like the famous Web Map  
> Server performance shootout.
> *Birds of a Feather*: Rooms have been set aside for semi-organised  
> meetings between like minded groups. Some prominent community  
> initiatives started in prior FOSS4G Birds of a Feather sessions.
> *Code Sprint*: The weekend after FOSS4G is reserved for the Hackers'  
> Code Sprint. Hackers will be locked in a basement with lots of  
> bandwidth, pizzas and coke. (Well, maybe something better than that,  
> but we don't want to spoil the mystical hacker image).
