Format of Lightning Talks

Lightning talks in EuRuKo 2009 will be moderated by the Lightning Talks Master, which will be near the stage with this gong:

Once you've got your laptop connected or whatever and you're ready the LTM beats the gong and you have exactly 5 (five) minutes. No mercy! Squeeze your slides!!!! Run!!!!

LTM has a stopwatch. A gong beat will warn/terrify you at minute 4, and at minute 5 the gong with will signal the end. Next speaker is ready. redo.
