Above is the July version; August happens to be the previous id:

Didn't hear of it before, and I'm not really inclined to go there.
AFAICS, there won't be booths at all, just "sessions" i.e. presentations
or workshops or the like.

Assuming for the moment that there won't be booths, there doesn't seem to
be much need for coordination. If you want to give a presentation, you can
just go there and do it. But since this doesn't seem to be a "usual"
conference to me, I wouldn't expect the organizers to honor just every
presentation offer they get.
Oh, and speaking of the organizers: it's organized by the Department of
Economic Affairs (MinEZ), but I'd guess that the most useful first contact
would be via the NLUUG or NLLGG. However, do make sure that you actually
end up talking [yes, _talking_] to the exact ambtenaar that is responsible
for the presentation schedule, otherwise your request may just vanish...
Some more digging around the Department's website unearthed one document
that may, or may not be relevant to the upcoming events:

I have 10pcs Debian logo poster, A0 format (real eye-catcher), for loan or
sale, to be collected in Papendrecht. Also 3 or 4 Debian logo mugs were
left over from SANE2006, but I'm not sure if these would be useful for the
Summer Camp(s). And of course I can burn quantities of any CD or DVD that
you might like.
