Seven presentations, seven minutes each, for a one-hour long session, allowing a short period of time for Q & A.  The topics are not necessarily related, but they are informative and entertaining.  This is modeled after the 'Fast, Funny, Passionate,' session style that has been part of the NAPC for a few years.
