Very much so.  My idea was just to do a single "showcase" presentation - one 
that simply briefly introduces each topic without really going into much 
detail.  The reasoning behind that is that I don't personally want to give a 
"tutorial" or "track" on my own at a one day conference.  I really don't 
gain that much by doing it (except possibly credibility as the local guru on 
the subject, which I'm not so sure that I am), and I lose out on all the 
other interesting lectures being given.
