SIG solicitation for 2019 CS SD

Hi, I'm ____ and I'm a member of the Event Team for the upcoming Contributor Summit in San Diego, on November 18th. I wanted to make sure that your SIG/WG knew about it, because there are several things we'd like you to participate in.

First, we're looking for Session and Workshop submissions for pre-programmed sessions. These are sessions for three of the rooms that will be submitted and picked in advance; we're looking not just for presentations, but for discussions, and hands-on workshops or code reviews. Submit them through this form, before September 9th:

https://forms.gle/6tgMmJ4sYHJ4CDxy9

We need your SIG/WG to send some folks to talk to contributors about participating in your SIG/WG. Please have your group's representative(s) complete the form below so that we can send them additional details closer to the date.

https://forms.gle/hxx1qz8XtwtXEBMm8

FAQs:

  1. Registration for current contributors will open September 5th.

  2. Yes, we will have an unconference track as well. Talks for that will be submitted just prior to the Summit and selected there.

  3. No, there won't be SIG F2F sessions at this Summit. Instead, we are asking SIGs to submit sessions with a specific topic or topics, aimed at engaging folks who aren't normally SIG members. For example, SIG Cluster Lifecycle has submitted "Cluster Lifecycle Roadmap" instead of an F2F. There will probably be standard SIG F2Fs in Amsterdam, depending on what the Amsterdam Event Team decides.

Instead of "We need your SIG/WG to send a couple of folks to that to meet new contributors and/or chat with contributors about their issues/PRs; can you sign up?"

Maybe something like this?

Yes, we will have an unconference track as well. Talks for that will be submitted in the week prior to the Summit and selected at the Contributor Social.
Is this correct? Will we be seeking talks prior? I thought the session gathering work would be done at the pre-party?

I'd like to add to what @geekygirldawn proposed and s/couple of folks/some folks/ since we wouldn't necessarily want to create the impression that we are limiting the SIG/WG representatives to only two.

The cloud provider SIGs have been renamed to "provider" groups. Would the templates need to reflect that?
