No, if you purchase one day of workshop(s), you can either attend on Thursday or Friday. You can’t select a half-day workshop on Thursday and a half-day workshop on Friday.

Is there a call for papers?
We do not have a formal CFP and usually directly invite our speakers, however, we do have a submission form for spontaneous submissions on https://qconsf.com/talk-submissions-qcon-sf-2018
