Here is my suggestion. Like many of you know - I'm not a good speaker, but I 
still would like to volunteer in case no one else does. The topic of the 
presentation is:

http://www.shlomifish.org/lecture/Perl/Lightning/Opt-Multi-Task-in-PDL/

Note that I'm unhappy with the slides as they are currently stand. I think 
what I'll do instead is present the problem (using some new slides), give some 
data (which I'll make available online), ask for ideas how to implement the 
task using PDL, and then maybe let people implement it individually.

Regards,
