At various academic conferences I have attended they have had "Poster
Sessions" where instead of a formal stand up and talk people put up A0
posters.

The submitter then can stand around to field questions and deeper
discussion from those interested.

Although A0 paper is a bit Old Worlde in this age. Maybe a bunch of screens
to websites containing the "Poster" and slots when you can come around
(physically or online) and chat to the author.

Many a talk I have been to would have seemed a lot better as a poster than
a hour of my life.


I doubly like this ideas as, alas, I will not be able to attend DConf, but
will gladly read online every poster submitted.
