JCP-related sessions at JavaOne 2013

As promised in my earlier post regarding the upcoming JavaOne Conference in San Francisco, below is a more complete (although not exhaustively comprehensive or official) list of JCP-related sessions happening during the week.  A big 'thank you' to those who contributed their sessions to help build the list!  There is something for everyone, drawing from Java EE, Java SE and Java ME JSR standards. If I missed something, please utilize the comments section below.
