17:30 - 18:30 Social hour

18:30 - 19:30 Dinner

19:30 - 22:00 Session 1 - Looking for Answers in All the Right Places
Session Chairs: Mike Hartman and Peter Westlin

Purpose of this session is to provide a forum for the stack testing community to identify and assess the critical priorities that affect our relationships with each other and the results of our work. The format will include small group discussions to identify and examine elements of our operations and products that could stand the light of criticism and to look for means to improvement. Followup will include a combined group discussion of the results identifying common themes and issues that we will use for reference throughout the next five days of the conference.

We will use brain-storming techniques and small and large group conversations. There will be individual and group exercises to stimulate discussion and total group involvement with time limits to ensure progress. We will try to ensure that all voices are heard and make the outcome visible and meaningful to all.
