How about requiring people to submit real papers on their chosen subject,
rather than just presentation slides ? The PDFs from papers presented
at OLS are orders of magnitude more useful than slides we've typically
accumulated from previous Xen summits. In particular for all those Xen
community members who can't actually go along to the summit itself, the
slides have very little content to learn from.

I realize the time constraints until this current summit don't allow much 
scope for long/formal writeups, but even just a few of pages of descriptive
text or technical details on the subject could be very beneficial as a
long term record of stuff covered at the summit.
