R-, I don't think there is any set agenda for these things. If the event took place in a big city where there were many people in the immediate area, then I imagine the event would be a day-only sort of thing. People would be able to come and go in one day. If the event took place in a more regional area, then travel time increases and so might the need for an over-night stay.
If we were to host something here at Notre Dame, then I imagine something like the following agenda possible starting in the mid-morning:
1. meet & greet
2. share demonstrations
3. eat lunch
4. give a presentation to library staff
5. have a hack session
6. socialize in the evening
7. go home the next day
There are plenty of inexpensive hotels in South Bend because of all of our football games.
