Position papers, talks and session ideas for Maps for the Web/Machine Learning workshops

Hi all,

[+ RQTF public list]

As with our recent discussion about upcoming workshops in the APA group 
leads naturally to thoughts on creating a position papers, session ideas 
or submitting a talk.
I'm happy to work with some others on this and bounce around some ideas, 
and there was expression of interest on the call. Can you let me know if 
you are interested in contributing to these topics and some of your 
thoughts on both Machine Learning and Maps for the Web? Please feel free 
to start new threads.

Here are the URIs for the workshops and here are some important dates. 
For submitting a talk to the Machine Learning workshop, deadline is July 
6th. [1]

There are a bunch of topics: [2]

What is interesting is that they are keen for a talk to stimulate 
discussion and ask questions, create synergies etc:
They say the talk should:

  * brings specific perspective on the topic,
  * identify what barriers may need to be lifted to make browsers a
    great platform for deploying machine learning applications and
    services, in particular those where interoperability and
    standadization are likely to play a role,
  * shed light on specific aspects or questions the Program Committee
    will have raised in their review process,
  * raise questions of their own that other Workshop participants may
    usefully provide input on.

This would be a good opportunity to present to those attending some of 
our accessibility related questions around Machine Learning.  If the 
person giving the talk end up being me, that's fine - lets collectively 
discuss what those questions/perspectives from APA should be.

For the Maps for the Web workshop they are asking for talk and session 
proposals, and also accepting position papers - application and 
suggestion deadline is 15th July. [3] [4]

For the position paper they want:

  * A brief overview of your experience or background, as it relates to
    Web maps.
  * Which aspects of Web maps you think would benefit (or not) from
    standardization, and why.
  * Any specific use cases or requirements you have for standardized Web
  * Examples of best practices you think should be followed (or worst
    practices that should be avoided).
  * Links to related supporting resources: standards, research, reports,
    explainers, software projects, or datasets.

Ok, I look forward to hearing some ideas and I aim to start to putting 
things together next week.
