Note: Presenters have half hour slots, with the exception of the first session of the day when four presentations must fit into 1 hour and 55 minutes in order to accommodate the "Welcome" session. We are running to a very tight schedule, and if your presentation runs overtime we will cut you off mid-sentence if necessary! We strongly recommend that you have a presentation of no more than 20 minutes length, allowing at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion, as discussion is the purpose of a workshop.
