there are a lot of intriguing questions here!

"It will be a full and unusually intriguing day, four lectures each with Q&A: two in the morning, a break for lunch, then two more. The talks will each be around 50 minutes with 20-25 minutes Q&A (each). These are going to be some interesting discussions and with four lectures we will be able to dive deep. Plus you will be able to ask questions."
