I uploaded the pictures I took to http://people.apache.org/~pgoetz/aceu2012/ for now.
Due to limited bandwidth of my DSL uplink, the ZIP (250MB) with all files bundled is still
in progress and will finish in about 1,5 hours (about 19:30 CET).

As I did not receive the floor plan in an electronic version yet, I simply scanned the printouts.
As the Rhein-Neckar-Arena (RNA) Sinsheim is the football stadium of "Hoffenheim 1899", parking
space is more than we need.
We will not have access to the entire stadium, only to the main building, the "Business Club",
which is "Entry West".
In the lobby, there's the fan shop to the left (no pictures), and the press room to the right
of the entrance hall (see pictures 0xx).
Level 1 and Level 2 are the main event areas (see the areas marked yellow in the Floorplan.pdf,
pictures 1xx and 2xx).
Level 3 is smaller and mostly used for meetings / discussions (see pictures 3xx).
On Level 2, there is the "SAP Loge" (where usually the IT and Orga Team is located) and -
not shown on the floor plan - the "SAP Lounge", an additional room for conferences (see pictures

I tried to mark the view points for the various pictures on the last three pages of the PDF.
Orientation of the floor plan: Top = East, Right = North, Bottom = West, Left = South.

On Level 1, there are two large areas (left/right), which can be separated by movable walls.
Each of these sections has a capacity for about 200 to 300 persons, depending on how the seating
will be arranged. Other events had a setup with about 250 persons/seats on the right area
(as key note area), using the left area for catering. The area in the middle is for chill
out, meet & greet, for smaller groups.
Level 2 has basically the same layout, with about 180 seats capacity per area.
Level 3 could be used for about 70 persons per area, but as you might see from the pictures,
this level is mainly used for meeting areas and for catering. For other events, it has been
mostly used for the evening events.
The press room has a capacity for about 80 persons, the SAP Lounge for about 50 persons.

Nick's assumption was something between 300 and 500 participants per day, with about 5 concurrent
So we could have registration in the lobby, one track in the press room, the largest track
+ key notes in Level 1 to the right, another track + key note video in Level 1 to the left,
one track on Level 2, and (depending estimated number of participants) the fifth track either
in the SAP Lounge or on Level 3.
That would leave pretty much space for meeting in the different lounges and catering areas.

Best regards,
