Web Summit runs online from December 2-4, and comes with appearances from professionals in tech, politics, entertainment, fashion, and more. From tennis star Serena Williams to PayPal CEO Dan Schulman, there will be an overflow of talent and advisors for those able to keep up. Roundtable discussions will touch on subjects like climate change, ethics and data collection, and urban mobility, to name a few.

The three-day conference will air over five channels: Centre (1), Creators (2), Society (3), Builders (4) and Portugal (5). Organizers are expecting over 100,000 attendees from over 150 countries.

On December 2, starting at 6:20AM ET, Wikimedia founder Jimmy Wales will appear to chat about the open-source information network that Wikimedia has created.

By 11AM, you can do air cheers with Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston during their presentation, which will showcase their new mescal, Dos Hombres. Then you can watch Renata Quintini (Renegade Partners) and Claudine Emeott (Salesforce Impact Fund) review 60-second pitches from startups. Also around this time, Mark Cuban will take part in a Q&A.

At 12:10PM, Liverpool CF’s Diogo Jota and Nuno Moura (Portugal Football Federation) will look at the evolution of football.

Science and technology buffs can take in an afternoon discussion at 12:50PM with Jim Swanson (Johnson & Johnson CIO), Recursion president and COO, Tina Larson, and Business Insider’s Andrew Dunn. The three will talk about whether or not AI can beat biology.

Media buffs won’t want to miss the “News of the future” session at 2PM, or the 2:40PM session, which will address whether press freedom can survive.

There will be mingle time between 3PM and 4PM (one of the many mingle hours), or you may wish to hear from Gwyneth Paltrow, who speaks at 3:15PM alongside Nicole Quinn from Lightspeed Venture Partners.

There will be over 800 speakers present at this year’s event. Attendees can chat, add connections, join in partner-led workshops, create their own rooms, or simply just sit back and listen. Also, there’s a guided meditation with Deepak Chopra, commencing at 6:30AM on December 4.

There will be a lot to take in over three days, so for a more detailed itinerary of picks, have a look below.
