Thanks for organizing this, Karen!

My first questions:

-Is it only one screener allowed?
-How many boolean conditions can you provide in the screener?
-What are the memory space and execution time implications of the number/kind of boolean conditions in screener?
E.g. what kind of screeners could make the pipeline running faster and with lower memory occupancy?
-Does the pipeline slow down if you add too many factors?
-Is there a limit in the number of factors?
