Thanks! Google meet is likely ok. OAR's WebEx account can host up to 100
participants. Zoom may even be an option.

I am kind of hoping to have presentations from the EPICS and CFS
communities. Maybe a GSoC project session. And some from core developers on
what they are doing. So don't think we don't want to hear about your work
even if it is a repeat from the EPICS workshop. :)
