Thirty-minute time slots might be a good move. We did that at CCC Budapest in 2014.

    Thanks Rafael - looks good
    
    My guess is that the slots may be pre-defined by the event organisers to sync with breaks,etc
, but if theyre not.......
    
    A 50 min is quite a long talk.
    If you are expecting a lot of good submissions , 30 minute slots could give 11 people
the opportunity  to talk. From experience, the more speakers, the more attendees tend to come
along with those speakers
    
    
    
    Kind regards

    Hey Giles, I will try to answer you inline.
    
    Some questions from me:

    1. how many speaker slots did you agree for the CCC part of the event (i.e.
    > how many talks are required)?
    >
    As we discussed in the PMC, we ended up with a one day track focused on CloudStack. This
translates to 7 (50min.) talks. By the number of people I talked to, I would say that we will
have way more talks than slots :((

    It was in their backlog to fix. I just checked, and it is fixed now.
