Hello, Joel,
I am currently organizing a virtual meeting for the EPICS community:

This takes place in 2 weeks. If this works well, I would be happy to offer our platform (and our experience) for an RTEMS workshop.
But the contributions would have to come from the RTEMS community ;-)
Viele Grüße

Although OAR now has access to a facility that could host about 40-50. Travel required to all be in a central location would be burdensome based on time and cost. Remember the core developers are spread across three continents.
