Speaking as a fellow track chair:
60 minutes is a LONG time for a talk. Personally I already find 45
minutes rather long to keep focused sometimes.
I've kept all the talks on my track to 30 minutes for that reason (and
before I needed the space). I've found speakers are quite amenable to
this. You could ask one of your archetypes speakers to cut it down by 30
minutes, perhaps. Perhaps this, and/or a talk swap for another CPS
related talk you could make people happier.
I'm interested in hearing about stuff I haven't heard about before,
