Yes - specific sessions with end times, for presentation and
brainstorming, as the start of future discussions.   We have other
good channels for lasting talk and arguing (like this one :)

Please suggest specific sessions or presentations you'd like to see or give:

Definitely.  The first day will be given over in part to setting the
scope and expectations for the week; that would be a good time for an
initial talk about this (noting Tomeu's concern above, perhaps at the
end of the day, before dinner...).

It would also be very beneficial to spend a good bit of time at the
beginning reviewing feedback from our major deployments -- not only
peru and uruguay, which have their own full-fledged national programs
underway, but also the next tier of ten countries with thousands of
laptops in the field and specific needs, results, desires, amazements
and stumbling blocks.   I have posted a concept for an agenda on the
[[9.1]] page; please take a look, revise mercilessly, &c -- in it I
left much of tuesday for this sort of feedback.
