How many main track presentations are we estimating?

30m + 15m Q&A is quite a long time and longer than for most main track
items at most events I've been to :-)

I also wonder about session length. It's hard to have sessions much
longer than 1-1.5h (unless you expect people to move in and out of
sessions while they are going on which is quite disruptive). If talks
are 45m that means you get 2 max per session.
