I'll be there as well.

I'm a bit surprised by seeing only 90 minutes allocated for a f2f. I 
hardly see how we can discuss, let alone resolve, more than a couple of 
issues in this timeframe, especially since it's our first f2f, so lots 
of "get to know each other" overhead.

Or maybe I'm confused and this f2f will not be a working group meeting 
(making progress on our issue list) but more of a report to the 
community kind of event ?

Related to ICANN WG f2f, I have a few questions.

So far, I haven't seen any dramatic difference in the way this group is 
run vs. a W3C working group developping a technical specification. We 
also have teleconfs, we have email exchanges (and documents being edited 
in parallel), but all our WG f2f are at least one full day, sometimes 2 
or 3 days long. And they usually have 3 of those per year (besides those 
held at our plenary). IETF is similar I think.

The rationale is that f2f, given their higher communication bandwidth, 
are where most progress are made in resolving issues, and also that of 
course it costs a lot of money to gather 20 experts in one location, so 
better use their time effectively.

Maybe there is a difference between a f2f run as part of an ICANN 
plenary, and an isolated WG f2f ?
