!!Con (pronounced “bang bang con”) West is a radically eclectic, radically affordable conference of ten-minute talks about the joy, excitement, and surprise of computing. If you’ve heard of !!Con, it’s the west-coast version of that! If you haven’t heard of !!Con, that’s okay!
I’m very excited to be part of the team bringing !!Con West to UC Santa Cruz for the second year in a row. !!Con West 2020 will be held February 29-March 1, 2020 (the Leap Day weekend!), and our call for talk proposals is open until December 8. We’re looking for talk proposals on any computing-related topic that excites you. We like weird things — if it brings you joy but it’s too weird or too niche for other conferences, it just might be perfect for !!Con West. The only requirement is that there must be at least one exclamation point in the title of your talk!
