On April 25, 2017, WBH hosted an abstract workshop for those proposing to present at RSA and CCCC. A number of faculty and students gathered to discuss the upcoming conferences. We talked about the unique CFP for CCCC 2018, including the hashtags that each potential presenter had to select for his/her proposal. We also talked about the historical component of the 2018 RSA anniversary CFP. After discussing as a large group, attendees broke into small groups. One group continued to discuss hashtags for their personal proposals for Cs, while other small groups read and gave feedback on each others' proposals. Overall, this workshop was immensely helpful as we all prepare to submit proposals for upcoming conferences!
