There are two cloud-related sessions in the “community” section of
Microsoft TechEd Europe 2009 and you need to vote for them here if you are

Going to the Cloud: Are we crazy?
Are cloud services about efficiency or negligence? About being able to
outsource commodity services and concentrate on core competence or loosing
