It depends whether you are matched with a team or not.
If you are matched a first face to face meeting with your team, possibly during the first Saturday work period, is to be expected.
All other communications will be either virtual, via Slack, or face to face according to availabilities and preferences of the parties.
The semi-final will be held on Saturday, November 2nd in Quebec and on Sunday, November 3rd in Ontario. Mentors, if available, are usually there to show support for their team (approx. 2 hours required).
If you are not matched with a team your presence will be most appreciated by the teams during the Saturday work periods following the workshops.
Workshops will take place from 8:30 am to 12:30. Work periods will be from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
The workshops and work periods of the 2019 edition will take place on the following dates:
Saturday October 5th
Saturday October 12th
Saturday October 19th
Saturday October 26th
Workshops/work sessions will be held in various easily accessible places in the city.
Attending all the work sessions is not mandatory, but the more you are present, the more you will experience the essence of the Cooperathon.
