Yes, you can request a duration, but keep in mind the virtual nature of
the event.  

If you think it's useful, you can also propose follow-up/breakout with a
smaller group of interested parties for more detailed technical
discussion.  It's still a bit unclear how this is all going to work out
with it being virtual, but we'll be able to do smaller, targetted
sessions if needed as well.
