Dirk Frimout as well ? If I read the link correctly, only Frank de Winne is mentioned to appear.

Kirsten ... now I have checked and You're right BUT I guess he will be present at least during one of the three days as he was present on all earlier editions ... Best chance will be Friday morning during the official opening ...
Viscount Dr Frimout is also involved in the "Earth Explorer" center in OOSTENDE, a large complex near the Napoleantic Fort at the Coastline between OOSTENDE and BREDENE

As far as the organizers tell me, Frank de Winne will be the only astronaut apparing there.

And I'm seriously thinking of attending the event on Saturday, especially on Saturday morning when De Winne will be there for the "Human Spaceflight Pro & Contra" debate.
Anybody else ? On the Yahoo groups, someone proposed a geek meeting there ...
