If you want (its very useful to have a rough estimation of how many people come - since most of the people don't register here, you can expect up to 10 times more people than the number which will have registered here), you can add your name to the list of participants: Demo050217EnParticipants
Hint: You can use such page also to organize travel groups (Train/Car) by adding your coordinates.
