From the conference website:

Will Christ literally rule on the earth for 1,000 years? What role does Israel play in the millennium? What kind of activities will occur during the millennium? These and other questions will be addressed by leading scholars and theologians as they give a wide range of perspectives on the millennial reign of Christ.
