Hi Rufus,

I like to disagree. We can not have that short talks for all presentations, Lets have different formats!

We discussed this issue today at the programme committee meeting and came up with

3 to 5 min lightning talk

15 min short talk or demo 

keynote 15 to 30 min + 15 Q&A (30 - 45)

main track presentation 30 min + 15 Q&A (45)
