Annual Mobicents Community Summit - Sochi, Russia, December 4-9, 2011

By tradition, the Mobicents core team and community contributors will meet in person for a week of brainstorming and fun. The location we chose this year is Sochi, Russia - the home of the Winter Olympic Games 2014.

The goal of the week-long gathering is to socialize, catch up on the latest in the Cloud Communications industry, review Mobicents projects progress and set direction for the next 12-18 months.

The event is open to all Mobicents contributors and community members. This is a great opportunity to mingle with the core team and share experience with fellow developers, product managers and entrepreneurs.

The event will be hosted at the picturesque Katerina Hotel:

If you would like to join us, please contact me (ivelin117 at gmail) or any other core team member as soon as possible.

Discounted hotel rooms are limited. Lead time may be required for obtaining a Russian tourist visa, depending on your country of origin. Do not delay. Contact us today!

The work days for the meeting are December 5,6 and 7.

December 4 is arrival day. The closest airport to Sochi is Adler/Sochi (AER).
December 8 is allocated for team building activities and focused group meetings.
December 9 is departure day.

We will allocate all of December 5 for community member presentations. This is a great opportunity for presenters to solicit feedback from fellow experts and influence the project roadmap discussions in the following two days. Let me know if you have something interesting to share in a 20 minute short talk. Example topics:
- Cool Customer Success Story
- Innovative App
- Surviving Production Crisis
- Developing Hurdles
- 3rd Party Product Integration Concerns
- Recommendations for Improvement
- Features Wish List

December 6 and 7 are allocated for core member presentations on:
- Project Development Progress for the past year
- Community Development Progress for the past year
- Planning vs Reality: Matching the 12 month roadmap set a year ago to what actually happened
- Integration Concerns with Other Mobicents Projects
