Call for Papers

For Flock 2018, we are accepting proposals as issues in this repository. We are doing this so you can solicit feedback on your proposal, look for collaborators, figure out who you need in the room, and who will be there. To submit, please open a public issue in this repository and select the "Flock CfP" template. Then follow these steps:

  1. Fill out the issue answering the questions.
  2. Leave the issue public.
  3. Solicit and consider feedback. If you want to make changes, just edit the initial comment. That is what the CfP committee will read.
  4. Submissions will be considered in rounds. Submissions not selected in one round continue to the next one. Therefore you can keep on iterating :)
    1. Round 1 selection starts on: 15 June 2018
    2. Round 2 selection starts on: 2 July 2018
    3. Final selection starts on: 15 July 2018
