Thanks for the invite. I actually research Swiss soccer for my very narrow research area. I would be happy to join in. My suggestion would be to have everyone that wants prepare a 5-6 page presentation. No more. That way we cut out all of the academic junk that we all know exists at conferences and get to the substance. We could set up a dropbox/blog where the papers could be posted ahead of time. On the appointed day, a discussion could open up. Because all would have read the papers ahead of time, it could be a 30 min discussion about each topic. Just a thought.
