Thanks for organizing this event !

I don’t know if it was asked before, but is there any plan to stream presentations for those who can’t physically be there :cry: ?

Also, will talks be recorded ?

Thanks !


Good quesetion! The talks will certainly be recorded, and streaming is likely as well (still discussing the details of the setup). Will update this topic with streaming link if it’s available!
