In this second (of 3) articles, I have provided a summary of the key discussion points from the full-day seminar. This is the key 'content' as I understand it. I researched to fill gaps in my understanding, check details, and provide links so the reader can better understand the context. All references are included. Any errors or omissions were unintentional.
