I will definitely attend it if I get a visa.

As for my personal wish, it would be nice if the architecture of ALSA 
plugin system is covered, e.g. so that I can make an ALSA plugin out of 
my not-released-yet DTS encoder (with the intention to finally release 
it). It would be interesting to know of any problems that were 
encountered when making PulseAudio work with the existing AC3 encoder 
plugin, and how I can avoid similar issues.

Obviously, if this is accepted, we need either a 5.1 receiver that 
accepts DTS over HDMI, or a similar receiver for S/PDIF and a laptop with 
S/PDIF output (my laptop has HDMI, but not S/PDIF output). Yes, I 
understand that HDMI has enough bandwidth for uncompressed PCM, so the 
encoder is useful only for S/PDIF.
