I would propose one more way out for this. We have more space,
although it has been reserved as "hack time", but people will end up
using it anyway in the most "ad-hoc" of senses. I think we must
acknowledge Monday afternoon/evening and Thursday morning *will* have
some talks activity — And it should be reflected in the schedule. We
can mark a distinction by saying those are "purely ad-hoc" spaces,
without video coverage, but allowing people to submit proposals for
those timeslots. Thus, we would gain 18 slots (6 slots, 3 rooms) for
ad-hoc talks. A similar slot could even be added after dinner, giving
up to 19 extra slots (6 days with the rooms separated in 3, 1 day with
a single room).
Again, even if we don't formally include said slots in the schedule,
they will be used. By including it in the schedule, we reduce the
space usage clashes and increae the visibility. And by not officially
videoing them (up to the video team to enforce/enable/prohibit this),
we do keep part of this "hacking time" requested by some.
