Excellent question, thanks! Nothing certain right now, but I imagine
there is going to be a bit of a mix of both. I imagine these will be a
few of the tracks that we will have:

1. Introduction and Tutorial to GNU Radio
2. Applications - paper session on how people are using GNU Radio
3. Hardware for SDR - come show your wares.
4. An open spaces session - open discussions about what people want
from GNU Radio and what projects people might want to purseu
5. Advanced GNU Radio - discussion and showing some advanced features

Anything that I might call a "paper session" is just the standard
wording from other conferences; I don't expect people to submit papers
and we will definitely not have a proceedings or anything (for this
one, at least). These are just presentations, and hands-on / live
demos should be encouraged.

We might also try to set aside some room and time for hacking. Maybe
get some like-minded people together to start a new project or
application while we're all there.

Any suggestions?
