Re: Committee to Sort through CCC Presentation Submissions


Hi Ron,

We (mainly Giles and Will, from what I am aware) are still in the process of finalizing how many rooms we get and for how long, so – unfortunately – we can’t answer your questions at least at this time.

We’re making progress on that front, though.

Thanks,
Mike

    By the time you go through one and write up a commentary, you have used 
    quite a bit of your discretionary time.
    How many days are in the review period?
    
    How many reviewers have volunteered?
    
    I would hope that key organizers of the conference are only reviewing 
    finalists where the author has already done a revision to address the 
    reviewers comments and the reviewers have given it a passing grade.
    
    How many presentations are going to be given?
    Are there any "reserved" slots for presentations that will be given on 
    behalf of the PMC as official project reports such as a roadmap or 
    project overview?
