Hmm, I'm not sure you're replying to the right posting here :-)

Chris brought up the question and I have a similar need: in general
I need to plan things a bit beforehand and would therefore like
to book my flight and hotel this week.

Now, of course, I'd like to know whether I'll be attending
a conference (which I hope) or spend 4 days sitting in
cafes in Geneva ;-)

That's good to know. I tried looking for the registered
talks on the web-site, but couldn't find them. All I could do
is look at my own registered talk.

I think the problem is a bit of both: people who sign up for
a conference will usually know what talks will be held. At
present, the timetable doesn't show any specific talk at

It would be helpful, to at least get an idea of what to
expect at EPC (apart from meeting the usual suspects ;-).
