Re: [Debconf-discuss] [Debconf-announce] Ad-hoc (or self-scheduled) sessions: The process
self-scheduling has now been setup for Sunday on the Front-Desk-window.
You can add your self-scheduled session by writing on the window from
the outside. Please don't write from inside the Front-Desk.
Make sure to submit your talk via https://debconf17.debconf.org/talks/new/
first and add the wafer ID to the slot, plus whatever you want attendees
