I thought for sure I mentioned in the OP that they were attending the Arctic Circle of Logicians annual Fresh Air/Fresh Ideas Seminar and were all wearing mittens. Apparantly not, so your answer does indeed fit within the constraints of the OP, Time Out. But for grins, let's do assume the logicians are all wearing plain white mittens.
When you say 'numbers less than 100', do you mean 'integers less than 100 but larger than 0'? Also, can a number be repeated?

and sorry, too - no blinking in morse code, looking in the reflection of the irises to your right, hoof stomping, shouting the number across from you in pig latin, etc., etc...

Each of eight logicians has a unique positive integer less than 100 stapled to their foreheads. They stand in a circle facing one another so every logician can see everyone's number, save for their own. Each logician must discern their number and raise their hand. After all logicians have raised a hand, they must then all declare their number in unison. What strategy (within the assumed spirit of these types of puzzles) might they employ such that all are correct?
Here's an attempt.
