Typically, it runs from mid-morning until late afternoon, with 3-4 speakers. Box lunches will be available for purchase and the final talk will be followed by dinner. The schedule (with speakers) will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Please register and also indicate whether you will be attending the dinner afterwards.
