User doesn't have to create an account in the website to register for
the conference. I don't want to make each delegate to remember yet
another password. We are starting CFP before the user registrations so
default values in #9 is invalid.

I would like to simplify it further.

1. talk title
2. duration
3. categories
4. level
5. summary
6. authors
7. contact address
8. notes for reviewers
9. support for uploading slides

I'll implement a form with 1-7 now. #8 and #9 will be implemented later.

The submitter will get an email after successful submission and that
email will contain a link to edit submitted talk. Anyone who knows the
URL will be able to edit the talk. No registration required!
