Boots, I'd be happy to help put together a BoF proposal on this topic.

I continue to be interested in the Communicating about CS to liberal
arts colleagues as a BoF.  I would be happy to hear from others who
might be interested in that.

    The SIGCSE program committee sent out a reminder about BoFs,
    posters, etc. a few days ago, which reminded me that the liberal
    arts committee was talking about 2 or 3 possibilities back at the
    end of August. As I recall, people were thinking about BoFs on...

    - Soft skills and interdisciplinary connections
    - Communicating about CS to liberal arts colleagues
    - Curricular structures for CS in liberal arts settings

    Groups of interested people were coalescing around each of these
    ideas. The BoF deadline is Oct. 21, so this is a good time to get
    those groups more organized and start writing the proposals, if it
    hasn't already happened. The groups seem to be in good hands, but
    let me know if I can help in any way.

    By the way, no news yet on the special session proposal, but I
    should hear in a couple of days. I'll let you all know when I do.

    Looking forward to our committee being well-represented on the
    SIGCSE program this year. Thanks!
