Actually either is OK, just the wiki will be the "master copy" of the documentation. I've added all submissions to the wiki already.

30 minutes is OK unless you know for sure that it will be too much.
If current submission rate continues there will be no room for 60 minutes slots, because there are so many interesting topics, that already claim to fit into 30m slots :)
Currently the proposed talks either almost fill the available time or leave room for just two more, granted that the "bootstrap hour" will be scheduled.

Indeed, a good question. I personally like my ~/.ssh/authorized_keys/known hosts file more than I like the X509 CA list in any of the browsers...

Be sure to touch on PKCS#11 support.
