That was Berlin Buzzwords 2012
By now Berlin Buzzwords 2012 is over and indeed we can say, that it was a huge sucess:
This year, we had more than 600 international attendees and over 50 speaker (out of more than 120 submissions). As well we had the biggest support ever from our Sponsors and would like to say thank you to all of you again!
We raised the numbers of speakers this year to make sure that we would get even more interesting talks in. To do so, we introduced a new talk format: the 20 minutes talk. So far, we got quite good feedback on this innovation and we probably will have a similar format next year again.
Talking about next year: we are already thinking of how to further refine Berlin Buzzwords in the future. Should we grow it bigger and reach out to more attendees in 2013? Do we want to incorporate a new track (at the moment, we are discussing the importance of data visualisation as well as big data used in science etc.) And we're still wondering how to get more women to Buzzwords – as speaker as well as attendees.
Your thoughts and comments about all this are very welcome! It would be great if you could share them in our wiki - we will try to incorporate that into next years Berlin Buzzwords.
To wrap up Buzzwords 2012:
