Perhaps *too* tight.  When I was at Usenix SRUTI '05 last year, the single
biggest problem with an otherwise good workshop was a lack of cross-pollination
time.  And that schedule was nowhere *near* as tight, and fewer attendees.

Remember that the hallway track of a conference is where much of the
most interesting stuff happens:

> 11:55 - 12:30 	Lunch break 	Got chow?

Indicative of the problem.  3 hours of sessions, followed by only a half hour
to eat *and* discuss (at SRUTI, it was an hour, lunch was provided, and it
*still* wasn't enough time to eat and discuss as well). Then another 6 hours of
sessions scheduled with only a 10 minute break.
