If you've got something interesting you think is worth presenting at the Scala Symposium (the forum for cutting edge work going on in and with Scala), consider submitting it to the Scala Symposium.
I know we've posted a wordy call for papers, but I just wanted to highlight that the symposium is for anything that's pushing the limits in Scala. Be it some fancy use of langauge features, or somebody developing the next JSON parsing library to rule them all. Maybe you have some benchmark showing some class of situations where the Scala compiler is slow that isn't widely known, or perhaps you've got an empirical study showing that some language feature in Scala is either helpful or a hinderance. Maybe you've got a cool new macro library that does something we should all know about. The limits are endless of what could be presented!
So, if you've got something you'd like to present, please consider submitting!
