This is the current agenda for MNTP-DC, taking place 8-9 February, 2010.

Sessions listed below are subject to change, but we'll make sure to cover any topics participants want covered. Some sessions may be offered more than once where participant interest dictates. The agenda will be collaboratively evolved by participants in the time leading up to and during the gathering.

Have ideas for what we should discuss at the event? Put them on the Session Ideas page, and we'll weave them in!

Sessions will be led by a fantastic set of Event Facilitators, and we invite all participants to consider facilitating sessions as well.
