Which will largely be set by governments, travel companies and
conference venues, so there's probably very little to discuss on that

The topic of how to best organize hybrid events to maximize
inclusiveness for remote participants is more interesting to me. LPC did
an amazing job last year with the fully remote setup, but a hybrid setup
brings new challenges. One issue I've previously experienced in hybrid
setups, especially for brainstorming-type discussions, was that on-site
attendees can very quickly break out conversations in small groups (it's
an issue for fully on-site events too). Session leads should be aware of
the need to ensure even more than usual that all speakers use
microphones. I don't think we need to go as far as specific training on
these topics, but emphasizing the importance of moderation would be
useful in my opinion.

There will always be more informal discussions between on-site
participants. After all, this is one of the benefits of conferences, by
being all together we can easily organize ad-hoc discussions. This is
traditionally done by finding a not too noisy corner in the conference
center, would it be useful to have more break-out rooms with A/V
equipment than usual ?
