This is the (evolving) schedule for the 2019 DELPH-IN Summit.

Monday to Wednesday morning will be plenary sessions. Wednesday afternoon to Friday will be Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The excursion will be on Thursday afternoon, followed by the conference banquet at Trinity College.

Plenary sessions will be in room FW11. For SIGs running in parallel we should be able to use FW09 as well (with FW26 as backup).
