    Great series of talks. Lot of new information. Glad to see the folks from our group and that we could all sit together and talk.

    This event is scheduled in the lower level stage of WCL, not the place where we usually meet for the science cafes. Tickets can be purchased online or directly (space permitting).
    Layout unknown, but will try to get a table on the same level as the bar.
    Anyone else can come early to help block seats?

      Yes, Girish, I should be there 15 minutes or so early.
