Throughout the weekend, students will deliver their own presentations, and discuss their ideas with the audience. A preliminary schedule of presenters has already been posted.
The event program will also feature presentations from other organizations. A presentation will be given by the Hungarian Two-Tailed Dog Party, a prominent party in Hungary.
