In the afternoon and on 20 May, the Seminar will continue with plenary sessions during which Palestinian and international experts will make presentations on specific issues.  Each plenary will have a discussion period.

A press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. on 19 May, and registered media representatives will also have the opportunity to arrange for individual interviews with members of the Committee delegation and participating speakers.  On 20 May, the Palestinian documentary Speed Sisters will be screened during the midday recess.
