As we enter the second half of the year, we felt that it would be worth looking upcoming conferences and programs from around the region as details about the events begin to emerge. We already have a calendar, but it would be worth now going into more detail and to provide some links for purchasing tickets to the events. Most of these are conferences, but there are some weekend events, too. I am not sure that we managed to include every single CEE event for the rest of 2013, but I think that we managed to put together a pretty comprehensive list and would welcome any tips regarding events we might have missed.
Mini Seedcamp Tallinn – 24 – Tallinn, Estonia – Happened yesterday, but their page includes the names of the startups which participated in the event, so still work checking it out.
European Pirate Summit – 26-27 – Cologne, Germany – Tickets are available on their site for 180 Euro for founders and 600 Euro for investors. Those who miss out on that will still be able to purchase late tickets for 300 Euro (founders) and 700 Euro (investors).
Startup Pirates Gdansk – 14-21 – Gdansk, Poland – One of only 2 Startup Pirates program in the CEE region for the foreseeable future. The program costs 36 Euro until August 1st, when the registration fee will increase to 47 Euro, and those interested can register here.

Startup Pirates Skopje – 21-28 – Skopje, Macedonia. The other CEE-based Startup Pirates program on the calendar. Their website is still under construction, so there’s not much information about it the moment.
IDCEE – 10-11- Kiev, Ukraine – Tickets can be purchased here at the standard price, which is 299 Euro for participants and investors, 299 Euro for startups, and 149 for “geeks” (unsure as to who gets this designation).
