A sliding time-table during these five days is chosen to enable maximum global participation in comfortable sunlight hours from your home or office. It needs no explanation that this is difficult, and cannot be completely satisfactory. The conference timings are admittedly grossly inconvenient for someone or the other on the globe, on one or more days of the conference, including for some of the speakers and the Session chairpersons. We hope that partial compensation for this inconvenience comes from the videoconferencing format; it eliminates international flights to attend the conference. We could not totally avoid the price that must be paid to avoid travel and consequent jet lag, but have attempted to minimise it. We sincerely regret the inconvenience. We have tried to limit the inconvenience by restricting each day’s session to a three-hour interval, as opposed to a normal eight-hour interval.
