to your question...

In my personal opinion WP2 will - as always be - very busy, and
occupied with much work. In addition you have to deduct the opening
ang closing Plenaries of the WPs and of SG16 (the later one about
1,5-2 days). So, in practice the question is if you can queeze WP2
work in 2,5-3 days (Monday-Wednesday 2nd week),
without giving time for preparation of reports,
documents, last minutes edits etc. for the closing plenaries.

In my opinion this will be very difficult.
