Not sure if this would just duplicate the information/efforts of the post-ASB surveys, but would it be worthwhile to create an online poll of the various suggestions from this thread? The membership could indicate their support for things like:

(1) Increasing poster/podium ratio
(2) More speedy-length podiums
(3) Limit of N first-author submissions (and what N should be)
(4) A day of only posters
(5) More poster awards
(6) Topic-based grouping of posters
(7) More thematic posters and various adjustments to their session format
(8) Adding a extra day to the program
(9) Maintenance of quirkiness/entropy
(10) Others? Apologies if I missed any.
