Topic Tables – At NILF 2010

At NILF 2010, we are trying to provide a unique opportunity for the delegates to Connect on focussed topics. Topic Tables will provide face to face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. Tables will be organized for broader topics, but they are entirely up to you as a delegate. We will post your topic online and onsite and provide the space and time. You need to provide the engaging topic and also get some discussions going. These tables will allow delegates with common interests to gather together and discuss those issues which may not have fit within the other sessions, or for which an unconstrained discussion is desired. This would also allow like minded people to interact/network with each other. These tables will provide the space and opportunity for delegates and groups to connect, network and share ideas. more
