Session Format

For MozCamp Europe, we're evolving the format from presentation-based conference to an interactive camp featuring tracks, workshops, sprints, and hacking opportunities with clear deliverables + goals to achieve by the end of the weekend.

For a list of our MozCamp goals, please see here

With this new format, we ask that at least *40% of each presentation* be an interactive activity which results in an outcome or deliverable which furthers these goals. This activity can take many forms. Examples include:

  • Tutorial on how to contribute to B2G
  • Code of Conduct Discussion
  • Workshop on how to recruit HTML5 developers
  • Apps Brainstorm + Creation Sprint

Presentation Templates


Questions and Answers sections are usually very chaotic, take a lot of time and give little in return. We want to improve the situation by offering each speaker a choice of one of three options for his talk

No Q&A

A speaker may choose not to go for any Q&A and use all the time he or she has for presenting.

Q&A after the presentation

Last 5 minutes of the presentation will be used to answer several top voted questions from Google Moderator application.

Q&A during the presentation

In this model, a speaker will have an additional tablet with top questions refreshing for him and he or she will have a choice when to answer them.
