Re: Lighting Talks!

Hi all,

I fly in during Friday afternoon so technically although I am there on that day but in practice depending on how long it takes to get from the airport to the venue I may not get there in time for the scheduled talks.

Should I fill in the form to confirm attendance or might that confuse Friday's scheduling?

The template is solely Adriens work, actually. (I only did that pandoc
stuff around.) Many thanks to Adrien for this indeed, sorry I forgot
to mention that in the first place.
