Yeah you did. :) . It's just that, when students hear about a "paper presentation" (or see a CFP), they probably has a conventional to-do list - like, prepare paper, send it, get approval, prepare presentation, go and present it. It is cooler to have a conference where there is no need of such boring stuff.
I just think it would be better if this (what you told) is also mentioned somewhere in the website. Just that people knows. :)
