Let me just be one of the many EuroBoostUsers to volunteer to perform
I'm currently living in Cambridge which can be a popular venue for this
sort of event - but if you want a volunteer to spend a weekend checking
out Parisian hotels, I can do that too :-)
Perhaps in the shorter term, people might like to consider gatecrashing
someone else's conference for a Boost session, booth, BOF event or
similar. One obvious open-source event is FOSDEM, held in Brussels in
February; though Boost might fit in better at a more "academic" event.
I second Volodya's request for more papers (etc) to be available to non-attendees.
