According to Kathy's list there are three different events on the Saturday 
before LCA, one event on the Sunday before LCA, and AFAIK there is nothing on 
after LCA.

The LCA web site has nothing yet listed for the Saturday afterwards and based 
on past experience I think that it's probably going to be something that 
people would be prepared to skip in favor of some of the other events from the 
preceding Saturday.

It seems to me that if one of the 1 day events had been scheduled for the 
Saturday after LCA and the other had been scheduled for the Sunday after LCA 
then everyone could have attended everything that interested them with the 
possible exception of whatever might be arranged for the Saturday after LCA.
