A one-hour panel discussion of the Tcl community. A moderator and four speakers will discuss:

  1. what Tcl/Tk resources are offered by the community (with URLs displayed by overhead projector or video projector) and whom we have to thank for them
  2. what resources are offered by Scriptics
  3. what shift, if any, there is towards Scriptics offering more resources
  4. what this implies for the Tcl community, and what the relationship is or should be between the community and Scriptics
  5. how we imagine Tcl being maintained and supported in the new century
After an initial 30 minutes during which speakers may concisely state their affiliations and opinions, the panel will take questions from the audience.

Posters, demonstrations, and presentations of projects or preliminary results that are appropriate for small groups make up this session. Attendees will have a chance to hear about exciting projects and talk with the authors about their work. To submit a poster or demonstration proposal, see the Call for Papers; the deadline is December 8, 1999.

The judging for the Texas Tcl Shoot-Out coding contest will also be conducted at this time.

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm   Work-in-Progress Session (WiPs)
Short, pithy, and fun, Work-in-Progress reports introduce interesting new or on-going work. Fast paced and spontanious, the WiPs feature new ideas or novel solutions to old problems. The number of presenters is limited, so reserve your WiPs slot by sending a note to Work-in-Progress reports are generally five-minute presentations; really interesting work can get more air time.
