I really don't get this. We have a talks team, which decides about
talks and workshops and all that. And then we have self-scheduling where
talks and workshops which werent accepted by the content team get
self scheduled?!?

Will those self scheduled event end up in the same rooms as the others,
filing the time tables even more, putting more load on attendees and
video volunteers alike?

Whats the point of this, why doesnt the content team decide on those
talks / slots too?

I'd understand if those self-scheduled events were in a dedicated different
room (which might or might not be videoed) but I dont get why it's useful
to have content team scheduling and self scheduling for the same ressource (=room).
