That's the idea. Use all the halls on 16th for *just* tutorials. The
audience will be different. You can pack more tutorials and people can

Then, on 17 and 18, do only regular talks in 2 halls (to keep only the
cream of the cream talks). The 3rd hall can be for people to sit around
and code, open spaces with presenters for detailed questions etc. 

If someone wants to organise a dedicated BOF or a hackathon/sprint, it
might fit in the open space room. If not, we'll have to find another
room for it.
