Lotusphere Online seems a lot more useful this year. In addition to having a community for each session (where I've been posting additional info, like links and related sessions), you can also view the Lotusphere events calendar within iNotes (the iNotes within LS Online), which is a public Google Calendar. I went ahead and added this to my personal calendar in Notes 8.5, like this:
1. Open the Calendar (make sure you have the 8.5 template, too)
2. Click on "Show Calendars" in the left navigator.
3. Click on Add a Calendar...Add Google Calendar, Public, as in the picture below.
Here's the URL so you don't have to go fishing around Google, like I did. Use the XML version of the calendar, not the ICS version.
And that's all there is to it. You can take this offline, too, but checking the appropriate box in the dialog.

P.S. Planet Lotus also has a public ical feed, if you want to go that route: http://planetlotus.org/events/ical/ . Just use iCalendar instead of Google in the Notes dialog box.
