[isabelle] Call for Bids to host ITP 2021

We call for bids to host ITP 2021, the 12th edition of the
International Conference on Interactive Theorem Proving.

It has long been decided that next year's ITP will be incorporated
into IJCAR 2020, the International Joint Conference on Automated
Reasoning, to be held in Paris.  But planning ahead never hurts, so we
are already looking forward to 2021.

As in previous years, the procedure consists of two phases:
solicitation of bids and voting. This message concerns the first
phase. A long-standing ITP/TPHOLs convention is that the conference
should by preference be held on a continent different from the
location of the previous meeting. For 2021, we therefore particularly
solicit bids from prospective hosts located outside Europe. However,
bids from within Europe are also welcome. Similar to previous years,
we expect bids to propose a date in July, August or September.

Bids should be sent to itp19 at cecs.pdx.edu and should include at least
the following information:

  * name and email address of a contact person
  * names of other people involved
  * address of website for the bid
  * approximate dates of the conference
  * structure (e.g., k workshop days and n days of presentations,
    excursion, etc.)
  * advantages of the proposed venue 

Some examples of previous winning bids follow:

  * ITP 2016 in Nancy, France  https://members.loria.fr/JCBlanchette/itp2016/bid.html
  * ITP 2017 in Brasilia, Brazil  https://cic.unb.br/~nalon/itp2017/
  * ITP 2019 in Portland, USA  http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~apt/itp2019bid/

The deadline for bids is Friday, May 31. Shortly after, all admitted
bids will be made public and the voting phase will take place. The
people eligible to vote are those who are seriously considering
attending ITP 2021. The voting system used will be single transferable
vote between all received bids.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact this year's
organizers at itp19 at cecs.pdx.edu.
