Absolutely, contact information is important too.

then maybe there is a need for more advanced workflows than simply 
accept / reject as for instance the ability to reorganize talk 
durations, create new tracks, move talks between tracks, assign talks to 
new track chairs, delegate the responsibility of accepting talks when 
track chairs are not responsive enough, etc. If these tasks need to be 
solved on IRC, then you might as well do the entire talk acceptance 
process on IRC.

I am not sure that the default "publish-in-place" accept/reject workflow 
of CMF/Plone is sufficient for the task that is needed here. Maybe 
Julien who has worked a lot with advanced workflows in courierCPS has an 
idea about how to better solve this?
