I'll be in Ireland next attending the First Collaborative International Software-defined Radio Workshop.
We received a small grant from the National Science Foundation to cover our travel expenses for the workshop. Internally, the group working on the proposal called this the "Ireland Pub Crawl" project. In spite of this, we have a good program and it looks like it will be well attended.
Hopefully, I can get my Beagle Board running with a couple of simple SDR demonstrations and attract some people interested in using this board for SDR.
