You should still, as manager, be allowed to add talks.  I think the
tab you are looking for is "add talk" :-)

I'm not sure what difference knowing this *now* makes... I guess we'll
sort things out in the meeting tonight.

Well, this isn't going to work with the talkMatrix as is, because that
currently only considers talks which lie on 30 minute boundaries.

I also thought we had an agreement at one point to all schedule talks
on the same boundaries in each block to make moving between tracks

That said, I can probably fix the talkMatrix to cope with this without
ridiculous amounts of pain.

45 minute talks again!
