I wanted to provide two additional notes about my talk on this list. First, you're really coming to see Aaron Kimball and Tom White - I'm working on getting that fixed on the conference pages.
Second, "my" talk is actually a full day of intermediate/advanced Hadoop training on Monday. It will be similar in style to what we offer locally (http://www.cloudera.com/hadoop-training), but will be specifically targeted at more advanced users (we will not be building an inverted index, and I have heard rumors the star wars kid may be involved). Here's the conference page: http://eu.apachecon.com/c/aceu2009/sessions/230 - you can register using the conference registration system (even if you don't attend the conference itself). If your boss won't fly you to Amsterdam for conference, calling it "training" has been known to help ;-) We'll keep the cluster up and running for the whole week, and provide support / advice for training participants throughout.
