If it is a two-day conference we could have a keynote each day.  The
PMC Chair could be a full keynote, or even just some short welcoming
remarks to open the conference.

Also known as ICT.    Do we have someone in mind?

Maybe ODF Toolkit (incubating) as well.

Could be worth having a 1 hour (or 45 minute or whatever the normal
session time is) to talk with each of these projects.  Or could be

Maybe set aside 60-90 minutes for a series of 5-minute "lighting
talks". which could include short demos, etc.,  These can be fun.

Maybe discussion sessions for build, install, qa, localization, web,
security, marketing, UI, etc.  In some cases we might have formal
presentations in these areas.  But where we don't, and even where we
do, it might be worth having time set aside for discussion.
