'''Warning''', this schedule is completely unofficial. The scheduled day for mini-confs may change, it will '''probably not be updated''' by mini-conf organisers. '''Use at own risk''', etc. If you really want to see a given talk, check the individual mini-conf schedules.
 
-
 
-
'''Please note:''' in some previous years, the LCA organising team insisted on individual talk slot start and end times. This hasn't been the case for 2010 and thus mini-conf organisers have had much more control over their programs. Mini-conf organisers have thus planned their days without (much) reference to the plans of the other mini-confs.

Below is the list of accepted Miniconfs for LCA2010, along with the names of the Primary Miniconf Organisers.

These Wiki pages has been created specifically to promote the details of the Miniconfs to delegates.

For the official breakdown by day, see Monday and Tuesday's schedules.
