For the BoF/workshop part of the conference (i.e. tue-fri) the
deadline for having a bof in the printed schedule is already passed,
too. However, we kept a big chunk of the rooms for ad-hoc bofs, which
will be handed out first come first serve, and registering a slot will
be done via a wiki. You are welcome register a room from these at the
