I see this very similar to how various devrooms get managed for FOSDEM
(which I'm also involved in): https://fosdem.org/2017/schedule/tracks/

There's a common CFP management system, but folks submit with an eye
towards a particular devroom (or a set of  devrooms). For example, a Bigdata
devroom I am co-organizing this year had its own CFP landing page:

The most challenging bit is figuring out where do you put presentaitons that
span multiple topics. That requires a coordination on the part of the folks
responsible for putting together a schedule for each devroom. E.g. in
our case we had a talk about big data graph analytics implemented on top
of PostgreSQL -- it ultimately ended up in Graph devroom, but it could've
ended up in either of the 3.
