well some conferences now days are doing things similar to mini WIP talks
(work in progress) where people give a 5 minute talk on absolutely anything.
Ie quick, show people something interesting/what you are doing it is easy
for new people or people not used to talking to start of with and get their
ideas out there.

There has never been any limitation at clug form people giving short talks
(apart I suppose from perception of the meeting by people)

If anyone wants to get up and talk abotu some subject no matter howw briefly
they are generally welcome I suspect.
