 In the past I know that we have simply gathered in a circle and discussed which works as well.  Whatever the case, if someone could volunteer to "lead" the discussion

It's my experience that a really good facilitator could make all the difference in how productive this kind of discussion is. I have no idea how to find such a facilitator (it's a pretty rare skill), but it would be nice to try, rather than taking whoever is willing to do the bureaucratic part....

and also submit it via the SciPy conference website (you have to sign into the dashboard and submit a new proposal) to help us keep track of everything I would be very appreciative.

someone could still take on the organizer role while trying to find a facilitator...
