Actually looking at it a bit more, this does seem like a mistake because
there is another my$ql specific tutorial going on at the same time...  
"Data Warehousing with MySQL and OSS Tools"... while our track has no
tutorial at that time.

Is anyone here close to the firebird community? They didn't actually get
there own track, but I am guessing that one could put together a "psuedo
track" for them based on the existing tutorials/talks. I think my talk,
while based on PostgreSQL, would be applicable to them, and I think a
lot of the other presentations on our track (and ones like Celko's)
would as well.
