Tampere initiated the first Local Meego Network in Europe, Tampere Meego Network. This is annual summit which is held in different locations around Finland. Tampere will host the first Regional Meego Summit in the world. Although the first Summit is at Tampere, this is a joined effort.
The summit is open, but the amount of seats is limited!
Meego Summit FI includes also a 'hackathon' type of competition, which includes two categories: 'Hard Core' (Both HW and SW) and 'Quick & Dirty' (Just SW). Competition is called: "Meegathon" and more details can be found below.

Guidelines and policy
This team will coordinate efforts related to:
The summit program includes keynotes, three tracks, workshops, evening party on Friday and Meegathon competition. On Saturday we have Finhack (http://www.finhack.org) annual conference on the second floor.
Topics will be set later, in February - March.
In every organization, there are people who just have the knack for getting the most out of certain software and tools. These tracks are where those people shine -- it is the place to show off the newest tools, share creative uses for old favorites, and of course pass on hacks, tips and tricks. Sessions may include demonstrations, pilot projects, examples, techniques, and lessons learned.
Also known as lame Workshops. Participating to Hackshops requires sufficient amount of hack attitude and enthusiasm. We have some facilities (small meeting rooms) for hackshops. If you get an idea about what to teach/show to others (preferably hands-on stuff), book yourself a hackshop space and let the organizers know about it by dropping at the information desk! Your hackshop will be announced in twitter and on the venue screens. If you already know a topic, put it below.
Ideas for Workshop.
Add your ideas for workshops below. Also add your name if willing to run the workshop.
Meegathon is a hacker type of competition, much like a hack-a-thon. The following competition takes place between Fri 12:00am and Sat 12:00am. All teams demonstrate their results Saturday to all event participants. Best inventions and innovations are rewarded. Competition includes two categories:
Quick & Dirty
All teams have a dedicated space where to build stuff in the second floor. The space is a big hall, which is divided into smaller areas.
Hands-on sessions are a central focus of the summit and attendees will have the opportunity to learn a wide range of new skills and software in these special sessions. Seating for hands-on sessions is limited and admittance requires pre-registration and a ticket. Sessions are 75(?) minute presentations in a dedicated room. Topics for a session should include any of the previously mentioned Session Tracks.
