GHC vs. GHC [Oct. 1st, 2010|12:32 am]

It's really irritating that ICFP and the Haskell Symposium directly conflict with the Grace Hopper Celebration this year. Grace Hopper is much larger of an event -- about 2,000 people, compared to ICFP's 200 or so -- so the ICFP organizers probably should have been the ones to reschedule. In any case, though, the thought that the Grace Hopper community is invisible to my PL community is annoying, and the thought that my PL community is invisible to the Grace Hopper community makes me feel ill.

Grace Hopper might not worry too much about conflicting with academic conferences in general? I remember there being a lot of undergrads, first year grad students, teaching faculty, diversity/recruitment staff, industry people.... maybe only 1/4-1/3 grad students/faculty who'd be concerned about research conferences?

The researchers I did meet seemed pretty diverse though, and I'm sure PL was covered as well as everything else.
