A lovely blog post! I can't help noting the large steering committee seems all-male though.

@jonathoda But the rules of academic conferences still apply, right? Authors are required to participate in SPLASH 2024, and thus pay (so far unknown) registration fees, and maybe have to travel to Pasadena as well if there is no hybrid option.

Good question. Traditionally the answer was yes, but that broke down with remote during covid. I’m going to ask the steering committee.

My employer has a no-fly policy, so I wouldn't be able to attend in-person even if the gender exclusivity was addressed.

I’m told there will be some form of remote participation this year but the details are TBD

@jonathoda Do you have a comment on the gender issue?

That is out of my control, and it is just the Steering Committee. My proposed Program Committee has been approved by SIGPLAN to meet their Diversity Policy .

Is there any good community to discuss your first attempts of writing a paper. I'd love to do this, but I've no idea how to start.

A proven method is the writers’ workshop. You could try to gather a group here.

I've had a whole one paper published but I didn't think the peer review was strict enough, so overall I'm not a good teacher, but I would also like to be a student on this topic
So that's two of us maybe. But I'd need to consider the balance between cost (I do at least know the huge workload involved) and benefit (would I get useful feedback? I don't care about the fame and fortune, just the community).
My "paper" was actually this chapter of a book published by Springer: https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=NZgHIFJeZvcC&pg=PA161&lpg=PA161#v=onepage&q&f=false

The sweet spot is about 5-6 authors in a writers’ workshop. Maybe I’ll try to put that together.

I'd love to be involved in this writers workshop please. I'm also trying to write more to share my ideas, but have little experience
