As I recall over 90 people are registered as participating. Time has been set aside for informal discussion. All I have listed here are the scheduled talks.

THURSDAY'S TALK "Lionel Mason: Twistors and Feynman amplitudes" puzzled me. I looked at the list of papers of this author, and didn't find anything related to LQG:
