I'm not sure what the status is, but in a small number of weeks, I
hope (by the end of May).

Depends on whether you're a speaker or not, a student or not or early
bird or not... but varies from about 70 euros to 200 euros iirc.  This
should be written down somewhere obvious, yes.

Not yet.  The submission deadline is May 31 and we *definitely* want
to have a program up before the end of early bird registration (to
give some idea of timescales).

be noise :)

Well, I hope it will be!  You won't be the remotest ever attendee of
EP though, we had a guy from New Zealand a couple of years ago...

  my chest or stomach it's really a sign of affection, but I don't see
  any reason for programming languages to show affection with pain.
