> The proposal is to have them during and in the same spaces as lunch

> For example: 10 minutes sessions / 10 slides presentations
> *Barcamp Sessions *We should reserve a special room for a day (or more
> maybe) for this kind of unconference sessions where anyone can schedule
> his/her own session by writing on a whiteboard or putting a Post-It note on
> a 'grid' of sessions during the morning.
> For example: The whiteboard opens at 8.30AM with 30 minutes slots. The
