Mine are in a post I made a couple of months ago to the forum at 
http://intgovforum.org/forum/index.php?topic=21.new#new - some edited 

* Fewer panelists in the main sessions.

* Consolidation of similar-themed workshops.

* Workshops and main sessions not to be held concurrently.

* A plenary session for discussion of procedural and organisational issues.

* Plenary sessions for discussion of the output of dynamic coalitions.

* Seat plenary sessions in table groups with time for small group 

I also agree with the suggestion that briefing papers should be prepared 
by experts for circulation prior to each panel, to save time and ensure 
that everybody is on the same page.  However there is a danger in this 
in that the written submissions and even the synthesis paper disappeared 
into a black hole last time, with no reference being made to them during 
the panels.  This should not happen again.
