SCaLE would have been this weekend in Pasadena. It’s a great conference, but having it in person right now didn’t work out. SCaLE will instead return to its roots, using a hotel in the LAX area like we had until moving to Pasadena a couple years before the pandemic.

SCaLE has been pushed back to July 28th - 31st at the LAX Hilton.

The announcement says the cfp is still open and the cfp form is open. The cfp page still has the old close date, but it looks like the cfp is open.


SeaGL in Seattle and FrOSCon virtual in Germany are both starting to organize for this year’s conferences. They both welcome new volunteers to help the great conferences.

SeaGL meetings are alternating Tuesdays at 18:00 Pacific Time. We are seeking committee co-chairs such as promotions, IDEA, programming and finance. SeaGL will be either virtual or hybrid, decision coming soon.
