Second event after very successful June event

We will have a selection of "Lightening" talks with debates with about 15 minutes for talk and 15 minutes for debate.

I am looking for speakers, so if you would like to talk about something let me know.

I will also be on a look out for a headline talk. However I wanted to get this date in the diary.

We will also have the important forum, of folks asking general questions at the end for general debate.

So please forward any ideas as soon as possible.
