SUBJECTS OF TALKS PROPOSED TO BE PRESENTED SO FAR

Would you be interested in doing a short presentation (15-20 minutes)? Let us know and we'll add it. (As the date gets closer, we'll be in touch to coordinate talks. It's possible not all can be accommodated though there'll certainly be time and opportunity to 'spread the word' informally during the gathering.)

The talks will be chosen, scheduled and moderated by members of The Irish Contingent chaired by Joe O'Farrell.
