you want to give a lightning (10min), short (20min) or long (40min)
presentation and indicate the level of experience with the topic your
audience should have (e.g. whether your talk will be suitable for
newbies or is targeted for experienced users.) If you'd like to pitch
your brand new product in your talk, please let us know as well -
there will be extra space for presenting new ideas, awesome products
and great new projects.

The presentation format is short. We will be enforcing the schedule rigorously.
