The LGBTQ@PLDI lunch’s goal is to bring together members of the LGBTQ+ community, providing opportunities for networking and for community building.

Our aim is to:

  • Foster a sense of community among the LGBTQ+ PL researchers
  • Help build new connections
  • Discuss what we as researchers can do to support our community

Lunch will be served in the conference hotel in a private area separate from the main lunchroom. Anyone who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ+ community at PLDI is welcome, including students, post-docs, faculty, and industry professionals.

The LGBTQ@PLDI lunch will be held on Tuesday, June 20th from 12:30-13:40. You can sign up for this lunch during registration. Those who have registered will receive an email with location information. If you did not sign up during registration but would still like to attend, you may email Michael James for more information.
