Correct.  I looked again and, yes, my recollection was faulty. 
 http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/books.html#Wir96a has reference [FiM98].  
The link is to http://www.vdf.ethz.ch/vdf.asp?isbnNr=2493 which offers 
the book "mit CD-ROM".  Not the CD alone.

Yes, Oberon Day.  Again, my recollection was distorted.

Not that I know of.

In principle, attendance is possible, burning several times 
my weight in jet fuel for transportation.  And being concerned 
with such esoteric topics as efficiency, my budget is always 
quite limited.

Email is a good substitute for being there and I got sound 
from some of the movies from the last meeting.
