    I thought the presenters were well prepared within the context of their individual expertise. They were asked questions that delved into issues outside of their knowledge - can't be too harsh on them for that. There was an assumption, I think, that everyone in the room was more familiar with some of the terminology than they were - it would have been extremely helpful to have a more open forum for questions during the presentations.

      I was just lucky enough to have this sent to me from a fellow PALL. All I did was copy and paste and invited everyone to come along with me. I've been waiting for something like this myself.
