Nathan, please feel free to submit the abstract, but could you please (in the additional notes section) include the author list? You might also mention in the notes that we're hoping to split up the presentation and additionally have "ambassadors" or something that will be there to talk to people about data, etc etc. The abstract may also be too long. If so, I say cut the last sentence, and whatever else, but try to keep some of the important stuff like non-astro, units, 3.0, and the scientific python ecosystem bit. The detailed abstract can include the entire current abstract. Also, I think it should be submitted to the general track, and not one of the domain symposia.

I've spitballed a short outline based on the content of the abstract.
I think it still needs to be fleshed out, but this should be a good start. Sam, Matt, Doug, and anyone else that would like to contribute but haven't chimed in yet, please take a look at the google doc and edit the outline as you see fit.

Interesting. I was under the impression (from Anthony) this was a possible thing. I'll write to the organizers' list and ask.
I think a detailed abstract is a good idea. We can start by fleshing out what's already in the abstract.

So there seems to be two issues with submitting our abstract.
First, there doesn't seem to be a way to add additional authors to the abstract. Matt, I think you're on the organizing committee for the conference - is it appropriate for us to be submitting a talk with more than one speaker? How do I indicate that on the abstract submission form.
Second, in addition to the abstract, which we've already written, there needs to be a "Detailed Abstract" -- the form indicates this should be an outline for the talk -- which will not be printed in the program but will be made public on the conference website. We'll need to collectively write this before we can submit our talk for consideration.

I submitted the sprint. Anyone else want to take a crack at the abstract for the talk?

I think that's a great idea. As I noted ... "I do not have any particular interest in acting as the primary presenter." :) I think we should divide it up between people that are attending.

It's up to you, but I'm moderately -1 on that.
