Thanks for this info; it confirms exactly what I was suspecting about the number of people, time required, and amount of content. I do think this kind of active engagement learning works best in a "depth first" way in which less actual stuff is covered more deeply and thoroughly instead of having more stuff covered shallowly. The former results in people really learning about less stuff, but the latter results in people really learning no stuff!

How/where was your 4-hour session held? One of the concerns for Denver is that holding a single 3-hour session takes up 3 times the space as a 1-hour session, resulting in fewer overall sessions. I think they are trying to solve that by finding additional space just for this kind of workshop, but info from Paris will be useful.
