But what if they got an email sent to the mail address they
registered with, saying something like:

Confirmation of registration for the EuroPython 2004 Conference.

Someone (presumably you) have registered to attend at the EuroPython
2004 Conference in ... with the following information:

Please get in touch with us at admin at if this
is not correct.

Log in to the EPC web site at [url] using whatever at with 
password ew435df2 if you want to change or add any information,
such as food preferences or to submit papers etc, or if you want 
to book a room at our bla bla bla.

Make sure that you save this information for further reference.

Don't you think that would reduce the burden a bit?
