That’s beginning at 10am in Honolulu, 1pm in Seattle, 4pm in Montreal, 9pm in London, and 10pm in Paris. For those on the leading edge of time zones, the conference will run April 20-23, beginning at 6am in Melbourne and 8am in Auckland.

Each day of the conference will include four 45-minute time slots, one beginning at the top of each hour, with 15-minute breaks between formally scheduled events. Some time slots will have multiple sessions running simultaneously.
