Propose a Discussion Session if there is something that you would like to discuss with a broader audience and get opinions and ideas from fellow RSEs. This session should include an introduction to the discussion topic and the specific questions that the participants should address. Depending on the number of participants, you may consider splitting the group into the breakout rooms with 4-5 people each.
This session is 1.5 hours long, and we ask groups to take notes. We recommend that in the last 20 minutes of the session groups turn their notes into a speed blog post, which will then be published.
The proposal should describe how the topic of the session aligns with the topic of the conference and what is the added advantage of discussing it with the broader audience.
