Two options.

If you already know for sure that you want to meet at a specific time on
Monday, Tuesday or Friday, we can pre-allocate you a slot.

Or you can come to the event, see who from the team is around, discuss
what their schedule looks like and decide when/where would make the most
sense to meet. Then you look at the list of bookable rooms and time
slots and pick the one you prefer. Tracks scheduled that way will appear
on the PTGbot together with pre-allocated tracks.

To book a slot, you will use the new PTGbot 'book' command. See:

Given how difficult it is to predict conflicts, my advice would be to
use the latter option and decide on the spot.
