Please consider submitting papers for the Tcl2K conference. It is an excellent opportunity to share ideas and gain new insights into your own work, as well as seeing what other people are working on.

One of the biggest problems that many conferences face is the self-editing of potential authors, feeling that their work would not be of interest to the larger community. One of the best advantages of the Tcl community is its large diversity - so if you are working on something interesting write a paper and let the world know! You might find that there are more people out there, working on the same things as you, than you thought.
