We won't need to: we can accept BOF sessions at the conference up until
we run out of rooms, so if there is overwhelming demand for more
interrogation time after a talk, we can just tell the attendees to form
a line at the registration desk to demand a new BOF. We don't actually
have to organise anything ourselves: the point is that the venue will
have lots of corridors, lunches and BOF sessions at which people can
catch up on any questions that didn't make the 60 minute allotted slot.
