16:30 Speed Dating
Speed dating is the quick (three to five minutes) discussion of three to five people by shaffling the members in every trigger. It is intended to meet as many people in different communities as possible and encourage speaking and discussing in a limited time. The theme of the meeting on the first day is "Warm-up session for the open discussion tomorrow." The dating organizer gives you two questions and shuffles the members. The first question is, "What is the future of CPV industries and technologies?" The second question is, "Do you find any solutions?"
