Team size and health

We are looking for two new team Content members.

Proposal to take about this next time.


10 days left for subsidy proposal so we should go for least amount of work to get it done.

What about Omicron-related decision in Orga? There are go-nogo meetings. Next one is around 16th Feb. Ticketshop is open.

NL gov will likely require a booster no older than 9 months to enter NL.

Submitting the proposal for subsidies

We need high profile speakers for this to work.

We should include some high profile speakers that are confirmed, some that we are speaking to and some from past events.

  • Apply again in January, closing date January 19 2022
  • Who are these speakers and how is the amount of 24,500 built up.
  • Information on the content of the speakers and their motivation, who has been promised/reservedly invited
  • Submit an application to the digital culture scheme: https://stimuleringsfonds.nl/nl/subsidies/regeling_digitale_cultuur/
  • It's important to contact high profile speakers before January in order to increase the possibility of acceptance.
  • We use the signal group and previous methodology.
  • Can we apply for https://www.fonds21.nl/ as well?
  • Who wants to participate: Claudia, Martian, Walter, Hugh, Robin
  • Team Content group chat header contains the link to the pad
  • Only office [Claudia]
  • Stitch will submit, has an account already and started the subsidy request
  • Stitch can reserve some time next week on Wednesday and vrijdag partly, if needed the following Monday. So we need one or more people who can work with Elger to get the final things done but first we have to update the documents.
  • Stitch thinks we can reuse the budget: it has some subsidy related posts. Maybe we need some minor adaptions to show the subsidy need.
  • Evaluation criteria include:
    • The artistic value of the project [Claudia]
    • The significance of the chosen theme and question for the discipline [Claudia]
    • The extent to which the project is effective in terms of its design, methodology and the expertise involved;[Claudia]
    • The support for the project, as demonstrated by the partners involved, the manner and degree of co-financing and the expected audience reach;[Walter]
    • The project's contribution to diversity and inclusion within the field. [Claudia]

Walter should get in touch with Treasurer to find out about the sponsoring status and what co-financing is Orga looking for as we might need this info for subsidy. [Walter]

Erik and Kirils have not objections if the subteam working on the subsidy request make the decision of a "theme" for the event ifneedbe. Claudia will post the quest for a Theme in the Signal group.


Status of submissions

81 confirmed submissions, 35 unconfirmed.

Chase speakers for confirmation. [erik/hugh]

Unfortunately, we still have 35 submissions that were submitted for the cancelled 2021 conference and the speakers haven't indicated yet that they want to be present in 2022 as well.

Erik will add tags in pretalx to those 35 and remove/hide the question. [Erik]

Current proposals (rather than speakers) are not diverse enough.
