So in terms of tests we would need, for example, ODF documents exported 
by Google Docs (or IBM Docs, or whatever claims to produce ODF) that do 
not render as expected in OpenOffice? I assume this "interoperability" 
(seeing the type of event) is meant exclusively in ODF format, right? 
I.e., nothing related to OOXML for example.

Well, the project does have funds to spend on events and they have to be 
spent, so funding is only a matter of a discussion/vote/consensus here. 
Don't worry about this.

Sure, any properly skilled contributor can do. Is there a limit on the 
number of attendees? You could also be 2 people, Amsterdam is easily 
reachable by anyone in Europe.

I find this to be an interesting event, especially as I am preparing an 
ApacheCon talk somewhat related to this; but it overlaps with another 
event and I won't be able to attend.

I haven't understood if Roberto is going to attend too, but a stronger 
presence at technical and non-technical events can only be beneficial.
