[Openstack-operators] Boston Forum - Formal Submission Now Open!

0 votes

Hey everyone!

We have made it to the next stage of the topic selection process for the
Forum in Boston.

Starting today, our submission tool is open for you to submit abstracts for
the most popular sessions that came out of your brainstorming. Please note
that the etherpads are not being pulled into the submission tool and
discussion around which sessions to submit are encouraged.

We are asking all session leaders to submit their abstracts at:

http://forumtopics.openstack.org/

before 11:59PM UTC on Sunday April 2nd!

We are looking for a good mix of project-specific, cross-project or
strategic/whole-of-community discussions, and sessions that emphasize
collaboration between users and developers are most welcome!

We assume that anything submitted to the system has achieved a good amount
of discussion and consensus that it is a worthwhile topic. After
submissions close, a team of representatives from the User Committee, the
Technical Committee, and Foundation staff will take the sessions proposed
by the community and fill out the schedule.

You can expect the draft schedule to be released on April 10th.

Further details about the Forum can be found at: https://wiki.openstack.org/

Regards,

OpenStack User Committee

Thanks for putting this together!

But one feature gap is some means to tag topic submissions, e.g.
tagging the project-specific topics by individual project relevance.
That could be a basis for grouping topics, to allow folks to better
manage their time during the Forum.

(e.g. if someone was mostly interested in say networking issues, they
could plan to attend all the neutron- and kuryr-tagged topics more
easily if those slots were all scheduled in a near-contiguous block
with minimal conflicts)

That is a good point! The tooling we are using this time is pretty basic
(a resurrection of good old odsreg for submission / selection, with
manual scheduling to the summit scheduling system in the end), and we'll
certainly improve it for future Forums.

For this first one, we'll likely rely on the Forum selection committee
to add the relevant tags when they manually schedule the session. It's
probably doable since there are a lot less sessions (only 3 parallel
Forum rooms * 4 days compared to the ~20 * 5 we had in "Design Summits").

So if you have specific attendance needs that should be tagged in a
session, I encourage you to mention it in the description, for them to
pick it up at scheduling time. Also, once the schedule is up, if you see
a missing tag, feel free to reach out to them so that they add it.

Hi Melvin,

Just to confirm - the Forum will run Monday through Thursday, and
presumably the session scheduling will be flexible to meet the needs of the
leads/facilitators?

Cheers,

Thanks Tom!

Another question - does the forumtopics app/site send email updates
when comments are added to a session one has proposed (or commented
on)?

For this round, no. You'll have to check back on your submission every
now and then :) Next round, for sure!
