Comment (by mrwweb):

 If you're looking for code examples, I still haven't found any.

 Since it was mentioned in the chat, the
 [https://2017.berlin.wordcamp.org/schedule/ WordCamp Berlin] is another
 example of a calendar that ran into this issue.

 To try to help frame the issues, in my mind, the primary questions are:

 1. Is the session defined by a length or end time?
 2. Is the markup with tables, flexbox, or CSS Grid?

 For question 1, I suspect the interface should be as user-friendly as
 possible and then the code will probably convert to a session length.

 For markup, tables can theoretically be semantically correct, but the
 current one isn't and it'll take a lot of work to make them better.
 Flexbox is intended for linear presentations of items so doesn't really
 correspond with the idea of a multi-dimensional calendar grid. CSS Grid
 likely makes the most sense and I still think the "fixed" grid example
 given previously may suggest a good way to handle this. Grid also has a
 really big advantage of being easier to make response as tables are a pain
 for that.

 Getting some input from the accessibility team for code implementation
 would be valuable.
