I like Javier approach, but I'd like to try to propose an alternative.

As far as I've understood the main problem is that the www page is
chronically outdated because no one seems to care about it now *and* because
is quite boring add content in a wml file (or maybe more boring than in a wiki
I think also that many people (DDs included) totally ignore the existence of
that page. ;)

So my proposal is to maintain the talks page on www, but to manage that as the
"Who's using Debian?" stuff: with submissions (see this page [1])
This afternoon I've modified the list of talks, turned it upside-down to show
the more recent at the top, as Rhonda suggested.
I can easily mantain the page updated if we created a paragraph in which
explained how send mails on www list, with appropriate infos with a sort of
submission form.
Another important condition is to improve the visibility of the page: if
people don't know that there's the possibility of submitting their slides
there's no chance that they submitting it. (/me is very sorry for her
evident assertion).

What you think about it?
