I'm not yet sure I'll be able to make it TPAC, precisely because of ISWC 
the week after - which means away for too long.
If I do manage to go, I'd certainly be interested, and surely we could 
discuss LOD and deployments, among other things.
Afa scheduling, I'd favor trying to do it towards the end of the week.
