2.Acquire basic idea of the current topic;
Choose one notable contributor from the current topic;
Prepare presentation regarding your selected contributor;

3.Join a conference;

Please share your opinion on this idea. We can agree on many initial conditions to improve the quality.

I propose that we would upload and post our discussions in the Inner Sanctum, however I don't seem to find a proper category.

This thread will likely be edited and expanded and will later feature participants, topics, sources etc.
