I would contact each of the project committee chairs and ask if:
1) they are planning to make it to the conference
2) if they would like to present about their topic

Then go from there.

Semi-related... we need to iron out the conference pass issue.  If they speak, 
i.e. in a lightning talk, will O'Reilly provide free passes?  It sounded like 
Nat could make that happen.  Otherwise, we need to know from Autodesk how 
many passes we could make available for these purposes (assuming some of them 
will actually be used by Autodesk).  Then we could provide the rest for those 
who could come and help man the booth, BOF, etc.

Any ideas on this?
