I think it is a good idea in principle, but I cannot do a long parallel 
session, as I have to be present in the plenary room on most of the 
other sessions. Perhaps I could do such a thing for 2 or 3 hours. Or if 
there is interest by the manufacturers I could do an evening session, 
but then they have to provide a room for the session.
