We have received few requests to make changes to the earlier schedule.
Schedule was so jam packed that we could hardly make any more changes however we still have done it all.

Here are some highlights:
* Schedule is finalized.
* Hackfests are happening on 6th of November, 2011 - all day.
* We have two classrooms spare for people to adhoc sessions, talks, share ideas or interact with the media.
* We have stalls by Diaspora and Chamba community

Have a look at the sessions, their votes, Hackfests and the latest schedule.



There was a major re-scheduling of talks for FUDCon Pune 2011.

We have taken into consideration many parameters like:
* on which day some of the speakers will be available.
* which talks received higher votes
* which talks are more suitable for larger audience
* which talks are more suitable for a smaller group of interested people

Latest Schedule is available here.

Day 3 i.e.- 6th of November will be all day hackfest. The schedule for 3rd day will be added soon!


Based on popular demand we have extended Submission deadline.

If you really want to present something at FUDCon Pune, you can still submit your Talk/Hackfest/Workshop. We will accept the submissions till

2nd of November 2011

More interestingly now you can vote on sessions that have already been submitted. The list of all the sessions is available at:
