    If you cannot make the time slot allocated to you, please email ***@***.*** to request a change by Friday 1 October, 17:00 UTC. From that point onwards, the schedule will be considered final and will be communicated to the wider community.
    You may have been allocated a repeat session, if you indicated relevant interest upon submission. If you do not wish to hold a repeat session, please email ***@***.*** by Friday 1 October, 17:00 UTC.
    Please note that the session recordings will be available within 24-36 hours of your session ending on the event website. If you wish to re-use your session recording for your repeat session, please inform ***@***.*** as soon as possible and before the 3rd of November, and we will do our best to prioritise making your recording available. Within 4-6 weeks after the event, all session recordings will be published on RDA’s YouTube channel.

    Dear all,
    we looked at the times for our two sessions and we are planned for Breakout
    1 and Breakout 10. We have a large community also in the Americas and these
    two breakouts are both bad for the Americas. Breakout 1 would be great for
    Europe and Australia but we would like to switch Breakout 10 for Breakout
    8. This breakout would fit well for the Americas and Europe.
