GOAT 2019: Call for Organizers!


Good Goat! It’s been a while!

After a quick breath, we’re beginning to thinking about GOAT 2019.

If you’re excited about becoming an organizer, please post here or contact the organizing committee* within the next 2 weeks and we’ll make sure you get the scheduling email to figure out next steps. There will be varying levels of involvement, so feel free to let us know what kind of commitment (time-wise, types of work etc.) you’re interested in.

In case you already forgot us, the GOAT 2018 committee was: @sudokita @chrowe @david.n.forster @donblair @dornawcox @gbathree @mstenta



I’m in. I can commit to a couple of hours a week. The only thing I’ll opt out of at this point is overseeing someone else’s work.

BTW @sudokita, it looks like part of your message got clipped.


My bad, thanks Matt. Updated now :slight_smile:


I’m interested in joining the organizing team. :grinning:
I’m generally available for all things between now and GOAT 2019 but may have a short period right before my defense in the winter that I’ll be less available.


I’m interested! I will need to be a bit cautious as to how much time I can commit, but hope I can be helpful with organizational tasks. I am more interested / have more skills to offer for organizing around specific conference happenings (helping with conference structure, facilitating participation) rather than event logistics (e.g. conference venue, food, travel, budget) – but would be happy to be included generally and figure out how to be most helpful.

PS organizers did a great job last year!! 10/10 GOAT 2018 committee ^^


Hi everyone. Just checking in to see what people are thinking for next year’s conference: location, date, size…are these questions firming up, or is everything still to be decided?
