We a currently coding a schedule-application for the Android platform. This
application will have the following features: (all off-line)

  * list the lectures, ltalks and stands
  * show the details/abstract of a lecture
  * select favorites so you can find your selection back easily
  * search for lectures based on strings in the title/abstract
  * find the right room easily using a map (todo)
  * alert you when your favorite lectures start (todo)
  * update the list of lectures trough the web (todo)
  * data-input is currently JSON based (still working on converting XML to
    JSON using XSLT)

The code is based on the googleio2009 [1] application. If you're an Android
developer and want to help please contact Christophe [2]. In the spirit of
this conference there is probably no need to say it's opensource code.

iPhone developers can also contact Christophe [3] if they'd like to write an
(opensource) iPhone application. He will assist you where necessary and give
you an XML or a JSON database of the lectures.
