We had originally intended to hold HPTS 2021 in October 2021, but because of the Covid-19 epidemic, we decided at the end of 2020 to cancel our reservation. HPTS is an in-person workshop. Unlike many other conferences, which have been held on Zoom, direct contact among the approximately 100 attendees has been a critical part of making HPTS successful since its inception in 1985.
The next HPTS will be from Sunday, October 9 to Wednesday, October 12 in 2022, approximately a year later than the originally planned October 2021 date. We hope that you folks (many of whom do not live in the Bay Area) will be comfortable travelling to Asilomar and participating in an in-person workshop in Fall 2022.
And we also hope that you'll all be as excited as we are to renew acquaintances with past HPTS attendees, emerging systems experts, new students in the field (we always want about 20% of the attendees to be students), the Asilomar beach, and Pat Helland's whiskey selections.
Very much looking forward to seeing many of you at another great HPTS workshop in October 2022.
