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, 
personally. :)
