As there are registrations from a wide range of time zones we will run two parallel streams staggered streams spanning from 9 am to 8pm London time. One stream will fit better time zones East and the other West of England. This means we shall be repeating some sessions as presenters so you will each have the chance to have the session closer to what would be a reasonable time for your time zone. It also means for some of the sessions all of you will be able to join in at the same time. It also means, if you can cope with the timing, you are welcome to join twice a repeat session if you so wish.
