Sorry for the ambiguity.
The whiteboard should™ be available at all times, and you can write
your session up in it at any moment (_AFTER_ registering it in Wafer).
Around 19:00 every day, a Content Team member will go to the board,
note down its contents (either take a photo, copy to a piece of paper,
or directly implement it in Wafer), and erase the whiteboard,
preparing it for the next day.
So, if you get to Front Desk on Monday between opening time and 18:59,
your talks will be scheduled for Tuesday. If you get to the Front Desk
at 19:05 (and we are strict in our timekeeping - Please leave us some
tolerance!), your talks will be scheduled for Thursday (because on
Wednesday we will be on a daytrip :-P)
