If you want to modify the format of how Sessions are put into the CSV you will need to modify the following lines (Lines 64-67)

#Modify theses line to change description/summary/location depending on your format
#My format is "Summary Location"
sum = item[i].split(' ')
event.add('summary', sum[0])
event.add('location', sum[1])
