I am a conference rookie but from my limited experience I think that the
length of the session was alright. I was looking all around and most of the
time people were either in talks or engaging with each other. I think the
level of corridor discussions were really good and must have helped a lot of
the delegates that participated in the conference. I am a little more
ambivalent of the situation of the lightening talks. As it was not in a
specific area or at a specific time people might have misses interesting
lightening talks due to them not knowing that it was happening. One option
could be to decide on a specific area or stage (if feasible) and decide that
all the lightening talks happen there. So if any session ends early those
interested could go over to that area and check out the lightening talks.
