I think it would be interesting to have any responses to these, in general. Not in response to specific abstracts, at least until speakers have had a chance to actually deliver their paper!
But, what's missing? What topics could we have had more papers about? What do we make of the concentrations of ideas that are present?
Another question: there are various understandings of 'play' expressed within these abstracts. From the very concrete - e.g. the activity of children or actors or sports participants - to the more, er, abstract. Are we all talking about the same thing, or is there a confusion of ideas here caused by using the same four letter word to refer to quite different things?
