Again, I'd rather have just one type of slot: 45 minutes with
an option to span two slots for longer talks.

I think that's for the track chairmen to decide, right ?!

Inline the links as well as the email addresses. Most
email readers know how to turn these into working links.

AFAIR, speakers get free entry, but have to pay for catering.
Travel and accomodation expenses are not refunded, not do they
get any compensation.

The Executive Committee, just like last year, except that
you don't seem to have finalized who that will be yet.
