Hello everyone,

Kongress has been moved to kdereview.

Kongress is a conference companion application. Its purpose is to help 
participants to organize their visit or online participation in a 
conference. It includes the following features:

- A collection of conferences that the user may be interested in
- The scheduled talks, displayed in various ways: full, by day, or by 
category (if the conference is organized in different tracks).
- Start/end time of each talk can be shown either in the organizer's or 
local time zone.
- The users can add a talk to a list of favorites. In case of 
overlapping talks, an information message is shown.
- Reminders before the beginning of the talk can be displayed. This 
interval can be configured by the users. At the moment, notifications 
are supported only on Plasma >= 5.20 where the wakeup scheduling 
mechanism was introduced.

Kongress is a Kirigami based application and it also uses KCalendarCore 
to manage the conference schedules. For a conference to be supported by 
Kongress, the schedule should be available in ical format.

The primary target user-base of Kongress is people attending a 
conference with a Linux mobile phone. It also works on desktop, 
leveraging the convergence capabilities of Kirigami. Finally, there is 
also an Android nightly build available.

All the best,
