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.

I asked a member of the ICFP steering committee (my advisor) about this. He said that nobody brought it up when they were deciding on the dates, but that he was surprised that no one had brought it up, since Grace Hopper was also an ACM event.
