12:00 – 12:30 Voting on topics

All CIOs rank all topics on a scale from 1 (not interesting) to 5 (very interesting).
Be selective: If you choose “5” more than four times it decreases your chance to get a seat in your most wanted discussion groups. A tool will do the matchmaking. It takes into account your ranking and also assures that you meet many different peers.
