OK, thanks very much for the consideration. We'll look forward to seeing you in Lyon on Wednesday, then.
In general, we do try to announce OGF's well ahead of time, so hope scheduling can be coordinated with other events wherever possible. For clarity and to help with planning, OGF 34 will be focused on working group meetings at Oxford, UK March 12-14 2012.
(There will also be a cloud event I believe in roughly the same time frame, though not the same days at the ISGC in Taipei, Taiwan and most likely a production grid and cloud infrastructure workshop in the US.)
We are aiming at OGF 35 mid-June in Delft, and a major multi-organization event including OGF 36 co-located with the e-Science 2012 event in Chicago October 2012.
Hope this helps with planning!
