Scheduled Sessions

Codex Alpe Adria sessions have a focus on public seminars on Saturday, and on demoscene productions and creativity on Sunday. Demoscene productions and retrocomputing artifacts are normally on display all day during both Saturday and Sunday. This year's Saturday event will be "different" in that everything will be loaded on a bus, and we will tour the region. Presentations will be short (about 15 minutes, followed by Q&A) and without distractions, and there will be retrocomputing items, videos and other activities to enjoy and get to know each other.

Please also refer to the overall event schedule for departure and arrival times, meeting locations, dinners, etc.


The following sessions are planned for Saturday (on the bus or in Aquileia, Cividale, San Daniele or Udine):

  • 09:15 - Welcome
  • 09:30 - Sergio Ruocco (main organizer of IPISA)

Personal Presentations

All the speakers of the scheduled sessions will be available throughout the day for personal presentations. This especially applies to the case where the language of the session was not what you hoped for, in which case we are at your disposal to repeat, translate and assist as desired.

Several other attendees will be sharing their hardware and experience during the event.

International Audience

As in previous years, visitors and attendees have pre-registered from several neighboring and more distant countries, including Austria, Australia, Slovenia, Germany, Sweden, the USA and the UK. We encourage everybody to take this opportunity to build bridges and make new friends.
