The lounge before/during registration sounds like a good time to meet. If I remember correctly, the conference opens with a reception at 6:30 before dinner, so our meeting up beforehand (5 pm-ish?) would be perfect. We could then try to sit together at dinner.

I'm due to meet up with other friends at some point, but I'll go to the lounge area near registration; if you see me, holler. I should be at the hotel by around 1 pm on Friday.

OK, let me edit this post because the initial link I posted wasn't stable. My main website is here. Photo's about five years out of date, though, as is a lot of the content.

Stu, maybe you could make next year's, in England. I think they alternate the conference's location between England and the US each year.
