Hi all,

We received an overwhelming response for this CFP - 35+ proposals (and
still some latecomers trickling in), for only 18 slots.

What we didn't much get (and the CFP failed to make it clear that
we're looking for this) is proposals for the workshop/discussion track
in the 2nd room. In the past we scheduled that ad-hoc at the
conference, but this year it would make sense to organize this.
Especially since we expect a lot of the talks we had to reject to end
up in hallway discussions. Formal workshop submissions also help us in
scheduling the main track - anything that's expected to generate a lot
of discussions will be put early.

Right now we have 1 proposal for the workshop track. We'd like to have
more. For details please look at "Workshop Track" at


If you have a topic, please send your proposal to board at foundation.lists.org.

Thanks, Daniel
