The first 2 days of the conference (Monday and Tuesday) are devoted to Miniconfs. They are each devoted to a specific topic and run by organisers (rather than the main conference) for a whole day in one of the lecture theaters. Except for those that require special equipment you can attended and of them as part of your registration and switch between them during the days. Schedules and more details of each Miniconf is published on the website.

==I'm not a programmer, should I attend?==
