We are a bit constrained by needing to get a program out and announced 
with enough time for non-speaker people to decide if they want to come or 
not. (Ideally we would have had a longer CFP, but getting the CFP open 
took longer than planned, and we can't really compress the post-CFP stuff 
much as the conference date isn't moving....)

Would extending the CFP deadline make that much of a difference? We could 
push it a tiny bit if needed, but not by much, and we'd need to decide 
that ASAP before we send out too many more announcements. I would have 
thought that most people who might speak will decide fairly quickly, and a 
longer CFP just means they put of submitting for a long time (and maybe 
miss it...) Is that not the case?
