ROSCon 2021 will be happening in New Orleans, Lousiana in October. The call for proposals has been posted.
Talking at ROSCon can be very rewarding way to share your expertise and knowledge with the greater community. However, putting in a proposal to ROSCon can sometimes be intimidating because you don’t know if there are people in the community who are interested in what you’re doing.
Similar to last (ish) year, I’d like to kick off a brainstorming thread here on topics that people would like to see presented at ROSCon. Even if you won’t be able to make it to ROSCon feel free to suggest a topic: we record all videos and post them online. All of the previous years talks are linked to from the programs (2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012). With people sharing topics that they would like to learn more about I hope their posts here will inspire more people to submit talks. We have a large and diverse community and want everyone to consider sharing what they’re working on.
Note that this thread is meant to be inspiration for submissions and will not be part of the Program Committee’s review process.
Please reply to this thread to share the sort of talk that you’d like to see someone present at ROSCon this October.
Also, later on there will be a solicitation for videos to be included in the pogram. If you have ideas now, let’s hear those, too.
Videos - One new format is the video presentation, with up to 2 minutes of self-contained audio-visual content, featured alongside the talks in the program. Videos will be presented without live narration or Q/A afterward.
- This is a brainstorming session.
- Be positive.
- There are no wrong answers. Please don’t critique others’ responses, but build upon them.
- Keep the ideas high level.
