FYI, we're planning to drop training/tutorial kind of sessions for this 
event. They have consistently been a huge logistical nightmare, and we 
always end up canceling (optimistically) 3/4 of them due to poor 
attendance numbers. They're a huge hassle for the people that have to 
plan the content and then not give the talk. They're a huge hassle to 
have to notify people that the tutorial they signed up for has been 
canceled. And they're a hassle trying to get the space for a talk that 
may or may not happen.

If this content can be put into a half-day three-talk series, where each 
talk stands alone or works in concert, that would be ideal. Do you think 
that we can put together like that? Any chance we could even persuade 
one of the OpenSSL folks to come for that? Anyone have any contacts there?
