Such a presentation would be very welcome. It will be particularly that the
presentation isn'tZope-specific, since object-relational mappings are of
interest to a much wider community.

Thanks for your interest: do you plan to submit an outline this week, or do
you just want us to allocate a time slot and then dun you for materials when
we're looking for finished papers?
