[Moving to the P4 Discuss list only]

Hi Daniel,

The close proximity of the two dates is indeed a bit unfortunate.

We decided to go ahead with the P4-EU date for a few reasons. First, co-locating with an academic conference (ICNP) simplified the local arrangements and also may help bring new people into the P4 community. Second, we had an enthusiastic local organizer (Noa) who was willing to volunteer her time to put on the event. Third, there is no real conflict: there are direct flights from Stansted to Amsterdam late on the 24th so it should be feasible to attend both events.

As someone who has organized several conferences, I can tell you that no date is ever perfect. A diverse group like the P4 community draws people from many different backgrounds and if we took the intersection of everyone's conflicts, it would be impossible to schedule any meeting. For example, during the third week of September, I'll be attending the Grace Hopper Conference. I'll be skipping ICFP / Strangeloop, which I attend most years. And I won't be able to make ICNP, P4-EU, or ONS Europe.

Hope that helps...

Was there a reason why P4 Workshop was scheduled in UK while ONS Europe is a day later in Netherlands

Hi Everyone,

We hope that you are planning to attend the 1st P4 European Workshop in
Cambridge on September 24, 2018:

We are happy to announce that, thanks to the generous support of our
sponsors, Western Digital and Microsoft, we are able to offer dedicated
travel grants for P4EU. These grants are intended to partially fund the
travel costs for early career researchers who would otherwise be unable
to attend.

The complete submission guidelines are posted on the ICNP website:

Please be sure to specifically indicate that you are applying for a P4EU
travel grant.

Finally, as a reminder, the deadline for demos, posters and talks
submissions (without proceedings) is quickly approaching: August 10th,
2018. https://hotcrp-p4eu2018.cl.cam.ac.uk/p4eu2018noproc/

See you in Cambridge!

Noa and Robert
