Well, probably other people get to speak too...
I already have prepared the talks schedule at our wiki: http://
Room_Presentations_and_Events . Currently I am a little bit unsure
if we first should collect all talk offers and then start
scheduling or if we start scheduling right away on a first come
first serve practice. I tend to collecting first and then
selecting and scheduling given the limited time (just one day or
eight hours) we have at our disposal.
Can I have an afternoon slot? I might be awake in the morning, but
I won't be coherent...
when does afternoon start for you? ;-)
I this will be posible of course but I can't give you final times as
What sort of duration were you thinking for talks? I would imagine
people will want to be dropping in and out a lot, so long talks
probably won't work. Maybe 15 minutes + 5 for questions?
15 Minutes is a bit short I think. Experience from the years ago
shows that 30 to 45 minutes is a decent time for a talk, actually 15
Minutes talks are considered "lightning talks" at conferences (also
at fosdem: http://www.fosdem.org/2010/call_for_lightningtalks ) and
usually speakers have a hard time to make their points within those
15 minutes. I think your proposals would make good 30 to 45 minutes
talks (discussion time included). And People usually didn't drop out
of talks (they only did so if the presenter was unexperienced and
took to long to catch the peoples attention - like it happened to me).
