DEBS'11 is quite a dense conference with a lot of activities, the only free evening is the tutorials day evening, which we used to have a co-located EPTS meeting, whose primary focus has been to grant the EPTS awards.
I am copying the notification sent earlier to all EPTS members:
Today, at the EPTS session that took place in the evening of the DEBS'11 tutorial day in Yorktown Heights, NY. EPTS announced its first series of EPTS awards.
