Presenter guidelines

For the 1-hour long talk categories, the goal was ~25 minutes of "presentation" and ~25 minutes of "discussion" (interleaved if you like), with a 5 minute leg-stretch break between talks. For the lightning talks, we aimed at ~10 minutes of presentation, the same ~25 minutes of discussion, and 5 minutes of R&R.
