Symposia programs generally consists of nine talks, each of which lasts about 20 minutes. There is usually a 30 minute break after the first five talks. CARTA prefers not to publicize the exact timing of talks so as to minimize disruption at symposia. In other words, CARTA encourages people to attend symposia in their entirety, or at least half, which confines the coming and going to the break period. The full program (including the timing) is posted on the CARTA website shortly before the start of each symposium for those who choose to watch the live webcast.
