I'm assuming normal human behavior that:
 people don't come there all at once.
 people don't leave there all at once
 not all people would stay from start to finish
 some people would arrive before, at the middle, or after a talk
 some people would leave before, at the middle, or after a talk
 some people would arrive before lunch
 some people would arrive after lunch
 not all who registered would come (maybe recalled to the office?)
 there would be people who would come despite not being registered
 some people would go there even though they don't have seats
