I have been unable to obtain the exact day, time or room their panel is scheduled to occur in. If you learn of any additional details (even if they've already been posted elsewhere) please share them on this thread. I've contacted Christian about sharing any specifics, and once he replies I'll make sure to share them here (or unless someone else can verify first).
I want to make sure the details are accurate in case anyone is planning airfare and hotel arrangements.
Likewise, if you are planning to attend this event and want to share that information, this is also the thread for that
