Good idea. Why not host an "open panel" with a bunch of proposed participants and leave it open for additions and "sticker voting" (with those colored postit notes) throughout the day. That would be a perfect final 30 minutes for the day.

I was told that entry before 13.00 (long before 13.00) is not possible. But arriving 30 minutes before would not hurt probably.

So there is
"SSH and SSL libraries" - libcurl, libssh, cyassl
"Integration" - ejbca
"General whining" - smartcard jungle, 2015 vision
"Misc" - dynalogin, rootkits, fribid
"PKCS#11" - storing trust, uniform access

I grouped PKCS#11 and SSL/SSH talks together, with intermittent "misc" category presentations in between, and start and end the day with "general whining" about the state of things and future possibilities.

Does anyone have complaints about the schedule as set up on OpenSC wiki:


If not, I'll submit it to the scheduling system.

Seems reasonable, especially taking into account Brussels prices... I'm still without a bed, but will hopefully fix this during the weekend...
