Work with us on the major events, and help us shape the future of ISCRAM conferences.

Track Chairs are the back bones of all ISCRAM Conferences, and it is our aim to learn from the past ISCRAM experiences to help us organise better conferences, provide better support and guidelines, and to collect new creative ideas. To this end, we would like to establish a new google group for Track Chairs that should be regularly maintained and updated, including information about upcoming conferences etc.

Ways ahead – How to Bridge the Gap(s)?

  • Sponsoring Committee: Events
  • Description: Set Up and Manage Google Group to Discuss Practitioners’ Needs and ways to Address These Needs
    Practitioner involvement has always been one of the major themes of ISCRAM. Work with us on actually getting the discussion between research and practice going! The google group you will set up will help us elicit practitioners’ needs, identify the most important challenges and find ways how ISCRAM researchers can work on this problem. This will be the first step to training course, tutorials coding camps, or workshops in association with future conferences. The google group will require regular maintenance, updates, and interaction with practitioners and researchers.
  • Time Commitment: An initial effort of about 15 hours, followed by an optional support role of about five hours per month.

Get the word out - ‘ISCRAM live’ task force

·        Sponsoring Committee: Events

·        Description: Coordinate and Organise Various Communication Channels for a Better ISCRAM live Experience
ISCRAM live is key to the growth of our community - allowing people from all over the world to participate in our events. We get a lot of respect and kudos for “dog-fooding” - we don’t just talk about how technology should be used in dynamic events, we actually use them. Until now, ISCRAM live has been organised as and when needed, posts on facebook, youtube, flickr and tweets have always been a part of our conferences, but we need someone to lead an effort to develop a plan for how we support event organizers in making ISCRAM Live a standard part of all of our major events. Programming skills are not necessary.

·        Time Commitment: An initial effort of 15-20 hours, followed by an optional support role of a few hours per month, and more time is typically needed before and during an event (conference, Summer School, etc.)
