"Abstract" and "article" presentation format, IOW.

Or encourage the entrant to take notes as you are speaking, perhaps.

As much as I love this concept otherwise, a few concerns: 
who edits? who puts up front money and benefits from any (paper)
profits? how is distribution handled for post-event compilations?

what are the reasonable limits on paper lengths (my "primary"
research paper is over 40 pages single-sided and still growing
currently, most of the usable extracts from it would be 10+ in
manuscript form)? 

how does the documentation with photos get replicated in usable /
non-muddy form (photocopies of color photos seldom satisfy...)?

Technical problems can no doubt be resolved one way or another.
Keeping the resultant document priced within reason could prove to
be a challenge.
