Hi Janina,
Is your audience going to be experienced linux users?  If not, why not 
demonstrate remotely shutting down a system?  I have always considered 
this very useful when my system was threatened by a thunderstorm.
I'm assuming there will be a majority of people familiar with 
accessibility products but not linux.  Is there any possibility that can 
broadcast the conference via a live stream?
