We want to make DPC accessible for everybody and so provide the following facilities:
We ask all speakers to create their slides with accessibility in mind like font sizes, color use etcetera.
There are gender-neutral toilets available at the DPC venue.
The lunch standard includes vegetarian options. Do you have any other dietary requirements please make a note in the specified field during registration so we can make special arrangements for you.
There is a prayer room available in the venue. The prayer room has a washroom and two private cubicles where people of all faiths can pray or meditate in a peaceful environment. The prayer room is accessible via entrance D at level -1. The room can be locked from the inside.
During the Dutch PHP Conference there is a quiet room available, the quiet room is the Forum room. You can use the quiet room between the opening and the closing keynote, and during the conference social on Friday evening.
For the keynote presentations and all talks in the two largest rooms we will offer Live Captioning. Stenographers from White Coat Captioning will turn the audio into correctly spelled text which will appear on large TV screens, usually with a delay of only ¾ of a second. It’s also possible to read the text using a web browser on your phone or tablet.
