Jessica, I think that for now we collect good ideas, and eventually everything should find its rightful place in the summit :)
Open access to research is relevant for the research track and for the summit, so let's keep it in mind.
I am working on finalizing some aspects of the CFP so we can send it out. Been a little slow the last days, but promise to catch up :)

I'd like to second the proposal that we have some discussion panels on OA to research, as well as a more traditional chance for people to present their own research on the commons.
We were thinking of proposing a panel on current initiatives in OA to research (movement in OA journals etc), though we hadn't worked out the details.
Unless something like this seems more appropriate for the main Summit, and the research stream should just focus on presenting actual research people have conducted? What do people think?

Regarding presentation format, I will agree that traditional speaker-by-speaker presentations can be dull, but that is not necessarily the case when people have something interesting to say, so I hope that we will receive good, thought-provoking submissions and then it should not be a problem. Also, the purpose of research is to go into some depth and the only way we can do justice to the work that people have been doing on themes related to the workshop is to give them some time to develop their ideas when presenting.
However, we will also include several opportunities for more lively interaction. So far I have noted down 3 ideas:
1. a discussion on future research directions and possible collaborations across institutions
2. a discussion on open versus closed reviews and how to promote more open forms of reviewing and publishing in academic circles
3. a speed-geeking session for more practice-oriented and artistic works that are innovative but would not necessarily fit under the rubric of academic research.
