MyHeritage LIVE Conference Presentations to be LiveStreamed

I received this information today from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage:


We are just 8 days away from an exciting weekend in Oslo and I have good news to share with you. 
We are making the final arrangements to live stream the genealogy and DNA tracks online on the MyHeritage LIVE conference website, so please tune in from 9:00 a.m. Oslo time on 3 November. If you need help calculating the time difference to your local time zone, you can use
Make sure to visit the conference website to see the full schedule and tune in at the time of the lecture to watch the live stream.
Speaking of social media, I plan to be very active posting quotes, photos, audio, and videos from the exhibition hall and social areas during the conference, so be sure to follow me:
and follow MyHeritage:
Don’t forget to post and share all your experiences using the conference hashtag: #MHLIVE2018

NOTE:  Central European Standard Time (CEST) is GMT + 1 hour, so for EDT (on Saturday 3 November) it would be 5 hours earlier (i.e., noon CEST would be 7 a.m. EDT, 6 a.m. CDT, 4 a.m. MDT and 4 a.m. PDT.  However, in the USA, daylight savings time ends on Sunday morning, so for EST (on Sunday 4 November) it would be 6 hours earlier (i.e. noon CEST would be 6 a.m. EST, 5 a.m. CST, 4 a.m. MST and 3 a.m. PST). 

This appears to be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the topics being presented.  Nothing is said about a cost to view these, so I assume (I may be wrong!) that they are FREE to view.  Will presentations in both tracks (Genealogy and DNA) be livestreamed, or only one in each time slot?

My next question is "Will the talks be available to view after the conference?"  I hope so - I have a schedule conflict on that day and don't want to get up at 1 a.m. to watch Gilad Japhet's keynote.  My guess is that the presentations by MyHeritage personnel will be available after the conference - I hope that's the case.
