SOTM + related

  • SotM Sticker for - Ian may be able to submit or at least prep a pull request.
  • What are we all thinking around the conflict of interest policy. Does this affect for example the program committee progress? Ian needs to weigh in on this as well. Perhaps abstain from voting on own talks? This is broader than just the conflict of interest policy in general we need to be very aware of both real and perceived conflicts. Proposal is to abstain from voting on our own (company's) proposals wile still being able to participate in the discussion around them.
