A tradition of ITP and TPHOLs is that groups can bid for hosting the next conference. The only restriction is that the conference should be held in a continent different to the location of the previous meeting. The following two groups submitted bids to organize ITP in 2017:
- Brasília, Brazil by Cláudia Nalon, Daniele Nantes, Elaine Pimentel, and João Marcos
- Portland, Oregon, USA by Andrew Tolmach, John O’Leary, and Brian Huffman
The people eligible to vote were those who are seriously thinking of attending ITP 2017. The deadline for voting was 3 June 2016. The winner is Brasília. Congratulations!
