Depending on the information that is there, you could
either put together a reader or use a storytelling
evening to start the conference with, or a combination
of both. The next morning the space is then opened for
the other issues on the list:

If there is information that everyone needs to know, it is
generally a better idea to disseminate that info before the
space is opened. The idea of having to sit and listen to a
lecture does not fit in well with the idea of OS.

A question: why is it important that Industry be the
party doing the prioritizing? Could it also be a
possibility to involve all the stakeholders in this
