I find it hard to commit either way without knowing which workshop ideas
will be submitted, but I thought Martin's idea was creative. We could give
people the opportunity to run a workshop in the morning and then have the
afternoon workshop be a continuation.

The structure would still be two half day workshops, but the workshop
presenter would have the to run a session throughout the day. The onus
would be on the presenter and workshop selectors to make sure the morning
and afternoon sessions were distinct enough that people would not
necessarily have to commit to the full day.
