The call for session proposals for next year’s Software Practice Advancement conference – SPA 2007 – is available.Â
The organisers say, “We are seeking sessions that explore emerging practices that software teams can leverage in their project work. We particularly value sessions that create an environment for participation and exchange of ideas.”
Topics and themes are pretty broad including novel systems structures, what really works, evolving systems, technology, people and process. Session types include the familiar workshops, tutorials, case studies, think tanks and working groups.
I’ll also bring some paper copies of the call to the SPA Cambridge pubÂ trip for anyone who’s interested. The 2007 conference sees a new venue in Homerton College, Cambridge and it would be nice to see more participation from SPA Cambridge attendees.
As a presenter at the past two SPA conferences I can vouch that leading a session is a rewarding experience, SPA delegates are well-informed, will ask hard questions and will help advance your understanding of your session topic.
The closing date for submissions is 11th September.
