Ah, yes. I figured it was well known, perhaps it isn't.  I see google finds these:

    International Workshop on Tropical Cyclones
    International Women's Tribune Centre
    International Watch Trading Company

I don't know, I've never been. Certainly the website (http://iwtc.firstport.ie)
isn't inspiring. Just a blog of news related to the conference.
No context, no vision.

Well burried among the "We're pleased to announce that foo is doing bar" posts
is an old 'Updated Provisional Agenda' from 8th Jan:


It's possibly very outdated, but I've appended the text anyway.
Hopefully an updated schedule will be posted soon. I'll shout when it is.
