The programme team has taken all feedback and ideas provided (on and off wiki) into account and has been working hard in the previous months to identify the main themes of the conference. We have presented the topics and possible formats in January, and then defined concrete sessions in February. A final version of the schedule is now available. Thanks to Mike Peel who created all the wiki tables!

Session descriptions are still being finalised, they are linked in the programme, and you can get an overview on the Programme page.
