The ODF Plugfest will be the 14th and 15th.  I'm sure that several
members of this list will be attending that event.  The Thursday event
is the implementor interactive technical interop testing event. And
the Friday session, where you are speaking, is more of a conference
session, with presentations,

I didn't get any interest on doing something during the day on the
13th.  At this point I've booked my travel and will arrive in the
afternoon of the 13th.  But I'm happy to get together with anyone who
is already there on evening of the 13th.
