What do you think about this layout?

Who would you suggest as speaker where I did not suggest a speaker?

Are the time frames for the presentations OK?

Too many presentations?

Start earlier to make schedule less tight (AFAIR the shuttle from the
hotel arrives at 8am)?

Note that not all items I have proposed are necessarily talks, but they
can also be discussions (introduced and led by the suggested speaker).

The discussion is goes on ...
