Hello,

Thank you. To do so, we should first figure out the model.

Whether we want to have a CFP (call for presentations) or rather invite
people in and then also publicize the idea. In that case, we should have a
tentative timeline, too. Newcastle sounds good although not sure if
international people wouldn't prefer to stick to well-connected places.

I would also suggest to discuss program-like stuff off the list. Once we
have the committee. I did mention the idea of a workshop to a number of
people already, though not in a definitive manner ("potential"). Once
again, timelines would be helpful.

Best
Lukasz
